Uhhh...yes that picture was disturbing.
Regarding using hybrids for organs, I don't think that will happen. Would probably be easier to perfect cloning organs. Right now the typical kidney
recipient gains 5-10 years from a donated organ, which means the organ would have to be replaced every few years if the individual lived long enough,
plus they have to take anti-rejection drugs.
Hybrid organs would probably be even more troublesome.
The point regarding who eats other primates, and how it is only banned in the western world is significant. The countries that are chowing down on
primates are the least likely to start any sort of hybrid program (except maybe China).
