LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - The greatest shift in human diet is about to take place, but you may not notice anything different. It's about your meat, and our insatiable appetite for steaks and burgers and more. Scientists have announced they have nearly perfected synthetic, lab-grown meat, and it will be healthier than the real thing.

Since 2013, lab-grown meat, or what they refer to as, "cultured meat" has existed, but so far only in the laboratory. Pioneered by a Dutch team of scientists, their first burger patty cost $330,000. According to those who sampled it, there was no discernible difference between the cultured patty and the real thing. The cultured meats are grown from stem cells in a laboratory now, but the process can be easily scaled up to grow them in a factory. So, cultured meat is real meat, but it doesn't come from a living animal.


Scientists are now working feverishly to make the cultured meat affordable and several new products are being prepared for market. Within the next 3 to 5 years, it is believed that cultured meats will begin appearing on store shelves. Here comes steak 2.0.

The prices have come down to around $18,000 per pound. The high prices factor in the fact that the meat is grown in a lab as opposed to an industrial setting. Once factories begin producing the meat, costs will drop dramatically. In fact, growing cultured meat could be cheaper than growing the real thing.

According to estimates, shifting to cultured meat, grown in a factory instead of in a living animal, will end the need to raise and slaughter animals for food. This will lead to a substantial savings in terms of cost. It will also resolve long-running ethical issues over how food animals are raised.

Land can be used for other things, and cultured meat needs 90 percent less water than ranch-raised meat.

Cultured mats also have other major advantages. For example, harmful elements can be removed from the formula, which would make the meat much healthier than it is now. There would be no bacteria, which animals always have, nor would there be any need for hormones, vaccinations, or other chemicals used in the meat production process now. Steak 2.0 may even be better than the real thing. Elements that impact flavor could be manipluated to ensure perfect, consistent flavor with each bite.

Scientists believe red meat in particular is responsible for a host of health issues, including cancer. People who regularly eat red meats have higher risks. While they remain unsure of precisely what element within the meat causes cancer, they are confident they can remove the culprit from cultured meat. Growth hormones are widely suspected.

Within a couple decades, we could see a massive revolution in the way we eat. We could stop raising animals altogether. It's likely there will still be food purists who insist on live food for their suppers, but such meals will become scarce and expensive. Most people will begin eating the cultured meat as prices, flavors and marketing persuade billions to make the shift.

Goodbye steak 1.0, here's hoping steak 2.0 is as good as the original.
