“Frankenstein” genetic experiments on humans will see massive “organ factory” farms of animals growing human organs to enrich the transplant industry

Animal-human hybrids are closer to becoming reality than you might think as researchers in Tokyo have been given permission by the Japanese government to grow hybrid embryos and bring them to full term.  The goal of the project is to farm human organs within animals to create a supply of organs that can be used for transplants.  There are so many concerns about this experiment that it’s hard to know where to begin. One of the biggest worries is that scientists could lose control over how much of these animals become human. For example, their brains could develop in a way similar to those of people.  There’s also the possibility that the procedure could transmit new viruses from animals like pigs to humans via the human organs grown inside of the animals.  Read more....
