When we see that no one is doing anything, we will do nothing This phenomenon is called the bystander affect and +» researchers have been studying it for years. In a famous experiment, researchers observe a participant in a room which begins to fill with smote. It looks like thare is a fre somewhere. When the participants are alone, 78% laave the room to report the smoke. The experimant is also 1» done wien several other people are with the participant However, researchers have told the other people to ignore the smoke. In the second experiment, only 10% of tho participants report the problem. One explanation for the bystander effect is our beliet «that the whole group shares responsiblity. We think, “It doesn't make sense to be the only person to get involved.” in addition, most of us follow the rules of what is socially acceptable. So, when other people do nothing, we think they must understand 2s the situation and have @ good reason not to react. Amaringly, there ate people who isk their lives to save others and when this happens we usually hear about it in the news.

When we are with friends or rlatives, our desire to make a good impression is very strong and can overcome our tendency to do nothing, Unfortunately, the influence of the bystandor effect is often tronger than cur ability to feel empathy.

Last time | went out for a burger and chips, it cost about £3.00. But this unusual hamburger, which was eaten by two volunteers, cost £250,000 without the chips! That's because it was an in-vitro burger. The meat was grown from a few cow cells in a laboratory and took years to produce. Initially. | wondered why anyone would go to such 2 lot of trouble for e hamburger, but the answer soon became obvious. The meat industry is not environmentally friendly. We ci down thousands of forests to create land for the animals to live on and this adds to gobal warming. Moreover, we use millions of litres of pesticides on the crops we grow for animals to cat. This pollutes natural resources lke soil and water. Firally, we use a larger area to cultivate food for animals than for people. So, although thousands of people are hungry, we have animals which are fed wel Mark Post, the Dutch scientist who created the meat for the in-vitro burger, believes that it could solve some of these environmental problems.

This would cause less damage to the environment and might even help prevent world hunger! However, if you examine the process of producing meat in a lab, you will soon realise that there are some verybig obstacles, Firstly, meat cells are rather like babies. You have to keep them in @ warm environment, where they will be well fed and safe from contamination. Next, a5 the number of cells increases, they develop into muscle and need regular exercise. Special equipment is used for this ~ workout machines for meat! Now imagine the cost and technical challenge of producing the several hundred million tonnes of meat we consume every year. What is more, after all this effort, there's no ouarantee people wil eat it. Many people will be reluctant to eat lab- grown meat because they might think it's unnatural. Clearly, youre not about to find in-vitro burgers on your | supermarket shelf any time soon. Yet, while he doesn't underestimate the problems, Post is optimistic. “I feel strangly ‘hat this could have a major impact on society... And that’s a big motivator,” he said.
