Important news, although this has been going on for quite a while. (Think about it - how long does it take to get from experimentation to industrialized farm production - and check old posts on "chimeras.")
Then people wonder why so many diseases are jumping species and kingdom barriers! ...We're weaving a truly tangled web.
Putting ethical beliefs aside for a moment, THAT point about species-jumping diseases gives pause for thought.
We are truly doomed as a (benevolent) species unless we can get away from these common and vile abuses of the living creatures of this once beautiful planet

Then I'm thinking kill a lamb for meat and use it's organs for transplants.
Oh I don't know...
