Religions asking if test-tube burgers allow them to keep the faith
PARIS (REUTERS) - When the world's first test-tube beef burger was cooked and eaten this week, food critics all asked about its taste.
For many Jews, Muslims and Hindus, the first question was whether their faith allowed them to try it.
Religious websites were abuzz with questions and opinions this week after biologist Mark Post of Maastricht University presented his innovation to the media in London on Monday.
"Is the lab-created burger kosher?" the Hasidic Jewish movement Chabad Lubavitch asked on its website.
