Have you ever wanted to grow your own food inside your home?(1)
你是否想过要成长你自己在你的家里的食物?

Scientists in Finland have developed a device that may do just that.(2)
芬兰科学家开发了一种装置,可以做到这一点。

It lacks soil and does not look like a normal vegetable garden.(3)
它缺乏土壤,看起来不像一个正常的菜园。

But, the small device, called the Cell Pod, grows edible plant cells in the home.(4)
但是,小的装置,称为细胞过氧化物酶,生长在家庭中的食用植物细胞。

Lauri Reuter is a biologist with the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.(5)
劳里 Reuter 是芬兰 VTT 技术研究中心的生物学家。

He says that instead of using the complete plant as food, scientists take only a small part of it – cells – and grow them in a bio-reactor.(6)
他说而不是作为食品使用完整植株,科学家采取只有一小部分的它 — — 细胞 — — 生长在生物反应器中。

These plants have much of the same nutritional value that a real plant has.(7)
这些植物有很多真正的植物具有相同的营养价值。

The edible plant cells, once fully grown, do not look very good. The Finnish researchers say they also need to improve the taste.(8)
可食用植物的细胞,一次完全成长,不要看不很好。芬兰的研究人员说,他们还需要改善口感。

However, the Cell Pod can provide important vitamins and antioxidants, which are substances that help your body to be healthy.(9)
然而,细胞 Pod 可以提供重要的维生素和抗氧化剂,是帮助你的身体要健康的物质。

Lauri Reuter adds that the new technology will not replace fields for growing fruits and vegetables.(10)
劳里 Reuter 添加新技术不会替换字段为种植水果和蔬菜。

However, the Cell Pod can help people eat foods that are hard to find or that cannot be made in a sustainable way.(11)
然而,细胞过氧化物酶可以帮助人们吃的食物,很难找到或不能使以可持续的方式。

In other words, the device could help save natural resources.(12)
换句话说,该设备有助于保存天然资源。

All you would need to do is add the seed culture to the device, sit back and then wait.(13)
所有你需要做是向设备添加种子文化,坐回,然后等待。

Reuter says the seed culture looks a lot like a very small container filled with coffee.(14)
路透社说,种子文化看起来很像很小的容器,装满了咖啡。

You put it into the device and give it water. The machine does the rest of the work.(15)
你把它放进设备,给它水。这台机器做剩下的工作。

The researchers hope to have a version of the Cell Pod on the market in the next 10 years.(16)
研究人员希望能在未来 10 年在市场上有细胞 Pod 版本。
