PETA Offers $1 Million Prize for Lab-Grown Meat

No stranger to controversy and publicity stunts, PETA is back - and this time, the animal rights group is putting money where its mouth is: PETA is offering a $1 million reward to the first scientist to produce and bring to market lab-grown meat.

Scientists around the world are researching or seeking the funds to research ways to produce meat in the laboratory—without killing any animals. In vitro meat production would use animal stem cells that would be placed in a medium to grow and reproduce. The result would mimic flesh and could be cooked and eaten. Some promising steps have been made toward this technology, but we're still several years away from having in vitro meat be available to the general public.

PETA is now stepping in and offering a $1 million reward to the first scientist to produce and bring to market in vitro meat.

Sounds like something that Dr Frankenstein or Granma Stuffum would create. imagine if that so called "mutated meat creation" that PeTA created would and could turn on it's creators and destroy them?????? Seriously if it does not looks, cooks or taste like real meat, then I'm NOT going to touch NOR eat that PeTA Monstrosity!!

Douglas Adams had it right. Breed intelligent animals who WANT to be eaten. Maybe we could feed them Peta holdouts.

I think Dwight Schrute figured out how to harvest meat from a horse without killing it.

Just trying to be helpful.

All I'll say is that if PETA put just a fraction of the energy, time and money that they consume remaining controversial into, you know, actually helping animals, they'd get a lot done.

And I used to belong to PETA and donate money to them, but I got disgusted after one too many publicity stunts. That, and the fact that they openly advocate euthanizing animals rather than keeping them as domestic pets.
