There is a general consensus among experts in the food production industry that animal food supplies may not be able to keep pace with worldwide demand over the next two decades. In fact, many people who have eschewed eating meat have done so partly for environmental considerations – the amount of resources used to raise one beef cow, for instance, is staggering. Meanwhile, food industry researchers have been creating new iterations of our favorite food, most notably GMO vegetables and starches that are more resistant to pestilence and disease and produce higher yields than their organic or non-GMO counterparts. It should come as no surprise then, that entirely lab-created food would be the next big thing from food scientists. But laboratory created steak?
Under Section 179 of the United States Internal Revenue Code, taxpayers can elect to deduct the cost of specific types of property, such as industrial equipment, on income taxes as an expense, rather than requiring the cost of the assets to be capitalized and depreciated.

As any diet-conscious food-lover will attest, striking a balance between good nutrition and great taste can be harder than keeping a good hollandaise sauce from separating. For many chefs, if they could only select two seasonings to use for the rest of their lives, they would invariably be salt and pepper. For those that want or need to avoid sodium, half of that iconic duo poses a big problem: too much salt raises blood pressure, can contribute to kidney disease, and even lead to a stroke.
