Scientists have developed "cultured beef" which is a product made from the stem cells of cows. Production of this "meat" does not harm animals. 

Would you feed this to your family? If you are vegetarian/vegan would you consider this meat since no animal has been killed? Do you think it would be safe?

Safe? Yes. From what I'm hearing though the taste is somewhat lacking.

I'd probably add it to a recipe as a source of raw protein, but never as gastronomic treat. I don't think it could compare to 100% dead animal.

I'm vegetarian, but whether I was or not, I'd still pass.
