A technology that allows pig stem cells to be converted into strips of meat might one day offer a solution to world hunger and a green alternative to raising livestock, scientists say.

"If we took the stem cells from one pig and multiplied...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Laboratories using new tissue engineering technology might be able to produce meat that is healthier for consumers and cut down on pollution produced by factory farming, researchers said on Wednesday. While NASA engineers have grown fish tissue in lab dishes, no one has seriously proposed a way to grow meat on commercial levels. But a new study conducted by University of Maryland doctoral student Jason Matheny and his colleagues describe two possible ways to do it....
