On Monday at a press conference in London, there was the unveiling of the world's first lab-grown burger. It was made from taking stem cells from two cows and was the result of five years work by a research team led by a Dutch scientist. Here in Sweden, researchers are also working to make artificial meat a reality. Julie Gold, a researcher at Gothenburg's Chalmers University of Technology, tells Radio Sweden about the impact artificial meat could have.
