Scientists grow a hamburger from stem cells

Scientists in London are serving up the first ever, test-tube beef burger made in a laboratory using stem cells.

It cost 3-hundred thousand dollars to develop.
Its creators hope "cultured beef" could help cut the billions of tons of greenhouse gases released by livestock.
Its critics have already labeled it "Frankenburger."
So what does it taste like?

"There is quite an intense taste, it's close to meat, it's not that juicy but the consistency is perfect."

"The bite feels like you know feels like a conventional hamburger."

The burger took 3 months to "grow."
It could be 10 or 20 years before you can buy a cultured beef burger at the grocery store.
