Scientists create GM 'superchicken' that doesn't spread bird flu


www.dailymail .co.uk

A genetically modified 'superchicken' that doesn't spread deadly bird flu has been developed by scientists.

The bird is intended to prevent the outbreaks of avian influenza which lead to millions of birds being culled.

It could also stop new strains of flu mutating in domestic fowl and spreading to people, leading to killer worldwide pandemics.

The British team behind the GM chicken say it is 'inconceivable' that its meat or eggs could be harmful. However, it will need rigorous safety checks before it could go into the food chain, they said.

Rigorous testing? I think not. This will be into the food chain long before people even find out about it. They won't be required to label the chicken as GM just as they aren't now required to label corn, soy, etc. as GM. Where does this end? I think that they eventually want the whole food supply to be GM with patents and monopolies.

There's money to be made and people to kill.

Just wanna say that this chicken may resist bird flu, but it'll probably develop a lot worse diseases like is the situation in factory farming.

Btw, chickens were already genetically modified awhile back, such as those designed to grow four wings and four legs and never walk (because they generate more profit by sitting and laying eggs all day).
