Scientists Make Meat – level 2

05-07-2021 15:00

A laboratory in the Netherlands can grow meat. Currently, a little piece of meat costs around $12,500, but the price will come down.

One professor said that the laboratory has an investor, and you could buy this meat in around three years. It will still be expensive, at around 12–14 dollars for a hamburger, but the price will continue to drop. In seven years from now, you will be able to buy it in a supermarket.

The production of the meat will be cheaper than keeping cows, but it is important that people like the meat.

Difficult words: continue (if something continues, it does not stop), drop (go down).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
