Real Chicken Nuggets Grown in San Francisco Lab

Winston Churchill once said that we humans will one day "escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium". Well, it looks like that day is upon us thanks to a food company in San Francisco! 

The company is called Just and it used cells extracted from a feather that was obtained from a chicken living in a farm near their labs in San Francisco. 

People who have tasted the nuggets said it tasted like chicken! That's a good sign because it could mean the end or at least the decline, of slaughter farms. 

Just a reminder that this is actual meat grown from animal cells and variously described as cultured, synthetic, in-vitro, lab-grown or even "clean" meat.

It takes about two days to produce a chicken nugget in a small bioreactor, using a protein to encourage the cells to multiply! 

According to reports, a total of 70 billion animals are slaughtered each year, this is also causing a lot of global warming.
