Can Lab-Grown Meat Save the World? Aaron Bastani Meets Michael Selden

After Singapore became the first country in the world to legislate for cultured meat, it’s time to ask whether cellular agriculture, and meat without animals, is the future of food.

Is it really possible that lab-grown beef, chicken and fish could replace the ‘real’ thing? And could cellular agriculture be a major weapon in the fight against climate change?

On this week’s Downstream, Aaron Bastani is joined by Mike Selden, co-founder of Finless Foods – a cellular agriculture business in California – to find out whether this exciting field can live up to the hype.
