Stem Cell Breakthrough

Who knew, out of all the diseases in the world, hunger would be the first one to be cured? Call it port in a petri dish - a technique to turn pig stem cells into strips of meat that scientist say could one day offer a green alternative to raising livestock, help alleviate world hunger, and save some pigs their bacon. Fish stem cell could be used to produce healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, which could be mixed with the lab-produced pork instead of the usual artery-clogging fats found in livestock meat. My question is, do you think you would eat this genetically produced meat?
