Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Stem cell fast food: Nightmare or savior?

    In Popular Science, here’s a fascinating article about meat grown on factory racks for human consumption.

    Think of it as Spam for the 21st century.

    According to the article, a small batch of stem cells can be used to grow large sheets of pork. Scientists add vitamins, fatty acids, and flavors to the meat, which could one day be processed into food products.

    Currently costing around $100,000 per kilogram, a choice cut of lab meat makes Kobe beef seem like a bargain. But meat-processing companies hope to start selling affordable factory-grown pork within 10 years.

    Ah, ya want fries with that?
