Lab to Table? Induced Pluripotent Bovine Stem Cells Overcome Decades-Long Challenges for Cultivated Meat

Technology from animal scientists is paving the way for future advances in sustainable food production

This shows the complex interactions revealed between meat, gut bacteria and multiple sclerosis. In (a), solid black arrows show relationships that are positively correlated: for example, increased consumption of meat correlates with increased SAM in the bloodstream. Dotted arrows show negatively correlated relationships: for example, increased SAM in the blood correlates with fewer Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron bacteria in the gut. In (b), the colored circles show the number of blood metabolites associated with each factor or combination of factors.
