Would you eat meat that was grown in a laboratory?

Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina are growing cultured meat. They say could eventually appear on store shelves.

The scientists use muscle fibers -- the main element of meat -- to create different types and flavors.

They say cultured meat would save land and water, no more worries about E. coli or other contamination and they can control fat content.

The only obstacle is raising enough money to complete laboratory work.
