Pharming with Chickens
from the not-quite-Frankenstein-foods dept
The same Scientists that created Dolly the sheep have produced another transgenic animal, a chicken that produces cancer-fighting proteins in its eggs. This is a great method to mass-produce many different disease fighting proteins. The only real worry that I have isn’t that the proteins will be effective (as it’ll probably be one of the best methods of drug production) but whether or not there will be a public outcry (particularly in Europe) about using animals as drug production factories.
