Petri Dish Pork?
My only question is who will regulate this product? USDA? or FDA? From singularityhub.com:
". . . Researchers in the Netherlands may be able to sidestep ethics and solve some of the environmental issues [of meat production] with their latest creation – pork cells cultured in a petri dish. This artificial meat is grown from myoblasts (special muscle cells which repair damage) incubated in a solution derived from the blood products of animal fetuses."

Wow, that's not healthy! Anyway there are artificial meats that I've eaten in some restaurants that serve vegetarian meat substitutes. They're healthy.
