Sorry, I didn't know in vitro meat was in the market for years.

It would not matter how long it has been on the market, as your example of why it would be so expensive does not support your claims regardless of the time period. How many prescription medicines are released at $300,000.00+? How about $30,000.00+? Or even $3000.00+ to cover the costs of development?

The $330,000.00 figure is the total research budget, not the cost of production ......

Post, chair of physiology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, said his project is funded with 250,000 euros from an anonymous private investor motivated by "care for the environment, food for the world and interest in life-transforming technologies."

Industry-spent research and development money in the United States was estimated at 55 billion dollars for 2007.11 Genentech alone spent nearly two billion dollars in research and development in 2006. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been spent in clinical trials for Lucentis, where per patient costs are in the tens of thousands of dollars.
