Cultured meat, also known as cultivated meat, is created in laboratories from a few animal cells without slaughtering any animal. It eliminates the need of farming and raising animals for food and prevents E. coli bacteria and other contaminants from entering the human body, which may be present in the conventional meat processing plant. Its production requires less land, uses less water, and produces less pollution compared to traditional meat production, which releases methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and other greenhouse gases.
