You can’t buy lab-grown meat in the grocery yet, but Florida and Alabama have already moved to ban its sale.
The push is a reflection of the concerns some livestock producers have that cellular agriculture could pose significant competition.

But lab-grown meat faces another hurdle — consumer preferences. Does cultured meat have a PR problem?

On Cincinnati Edition, we discuss the science, politics, sustainability and ethics behind cellular agriculture.

Guests:

  • Ben Bohrer Ph.D., assistant professor of meat science and muscle biology, Ohio State University Department of Animal Sciences
  • David Kaplan, Ph.D., professor of biomedical engineering, Tufts University
