Growing meat in a lab

I have read numerous times from professional bloggers that the way to make your blog succeed is to pick a topic for your journal (fashion, recipes, crafts, etc.), and stick with it. I guess that (along with not enough motivation to devote that much time to a non-paying gig), is why I could never blog professionally; my mind is too all over the place to limit my blog to one topic.

So, today I want to share something completely out of left field that really excites me: Scientists have been successful at growing meat in a lab from a cow's stem cells.

While I know the idea seems kind of gross, I can easily imagine that a century or two from now, lab-grown beef will be commonplace. Two of the most exciting aspects of it to me:
Vegetarians could forseeable eat real meat without any animals having to be killed.

Lab grown meat would use 40% less energy than the normal meat production cycle.
