Max Armstrong examines the environmental toll of lab cultured meat. Proponents say it is more environmentally friendly. However, it is grown in the same media as pharmaceuticals. So this is the question: Is it a pharmaceutical or a food product?

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
