"When meat is not murder"

is the title of this interesting Guardian report about a technique to grow fresh meat from animal cells in the laboratory, without any animal being killed for the purpose:
Scientists have adapted the cutting-edge medical technique of tissue engineering, where individual cells are multiplied into whole tissues, and applied them to food production.
I wouldn't eat it anyway, even if it came on a petri dish, but right now it's still one of those wait-and-see proposals. So, we'll wait and see.
