Singapore approved the consumption of meat made in a lab. This could revolutionise the way we eat. Cultured meat is grown in a laboratory, but it is real meat - real chicken to be precise. It looks and tastes like real chicken. The meat is from the company Eat Just. The "just" in the company's name means "fair". No animals are killed to make the meat. This could change the meat industry. It could badly affect chicken and livestock farming.

Singapore's green light is just the start of a revolution. Many companies worldwide will get approval to grow meat. This could reduce the environmental impact of livestock farming and change the world for the better. We could see disease-free meat, an end to the use of drugs in meat, and an end to animal cruelty. Cultured meat could create a safer, more secure global food supply. It could also lead to other food products.
