A group of scientists has developed meat in the laboratory from stem cells. The cardiologist and director of the company Memphis Meats, Uma Valeti, leads a research team that is reaping grown beef. It should be noted that the research group includes Valeti was formed in Mayo and dean Clinical Associate at the University of Minnesota, plus Nicholas Genovese, a biologist stem cell in partnership with Will Clem, a biomedical engineer and owner of a restaurant chain in Memphis.

The research

This breakthrough has the potential to completely revolutionize the meat industry by removing the moral debate of killing animals and providing the world cleaner, healthier and better quality, both beef, chicken and pork and beef. Such production requires only a period of time between 9 and 21 days.

For the development of this type of meat, scientists identified a particular animal cells that are able to regenerate themselves. "Then these cells are provided with oxygen and nutrients such as sugars and minerals", said the researcher, stressing that developing meat is "identical molecular and cellular level" that authentic. This novel cultured meat no side effects to health as bacterial contamination are highly saturated. "It is sustainable and is free from cruelty," he says.

The first manufacturing base of this meat will be established in the United States, but the ability to install others in India and China is explored. The group of scientists is optimistic and try to put this product in restaurants in three years and in retail stores in 2021. For now, scientists got funding through a venture capital fund.

Eating meat serves as a metaphor and teaching life. In the future it could eat meat without animals found dead. For now, researchers are under experimentation with crops, however, already showed that cultured meat could be healthier than traditional food, since oxygen levels and cultivation processes would a consumer product higher quality.

Researchers seek to place cultured meat in restaurants over the next three years and in stores in 2021, but still lacking regulations and resolve the ethical dilemma of stem cell work. The goal of researchers is to produce massively meat of beef, pork and chicken, the three species most consumed in the world. For now, scientists got funding through a venture capital fund. #Medicine #Science
