No animals were harmed in the production of this burger

While poorly educated societies living under constant fear of Mad Cow Disease and Avian Flu grapple with the concept of eating cloned beef, a Green approach for supplying the ever-increasing global market with meat products is receiving little attention.

"We can grow an unlimited supply of muscle tissue in petri dishes," said Chemistry Institutes of America head scientist Jamie Bond.

Cultured in the lab, disease would be virtually non-existent. Antibiotics and growth hormones would be unneccessary.

"There'd be no need to create obscene amounts of animal waste before slautering the proverbial cash cow," said Bond.

Experiments in 2002 with fish and frog meat yielded positive results. Beef, poultry and numerous exotic meats have since been successfully cultured.

The cattle industry isn't worried. Polls have shown the public extremely wary of stem-cell and cloning research.
