  1. The Beyond Meat article is really intriguing. Now that it's possible to "grow" meat in labs I wonder how people will react if it possibly starts becoming common in local supermarkets. Will it have the same reaction as genetically engineered foods, or harbor an even more intense reaction because of it's man-made nature.
