    Re: 150 human animal hybrids grown in UK labs

    I have a question.

    Why is mixing animal and human DNA for experimental purposes seen as such a taboo?

    No, seriously, people talk as if it is some sort of obvious line that must never be crossed but... why? The answer always seems to be "it's wrong" or "it's unnatural" or along those lines, something entirely subjective.

    So to summarize, no really adverse effect!!!

    Now I honestly wonder, here... where did you see the horrible impact? (and it's not a slanted question, I really want to know...)

    Thank you in advance!

    Sorry, I grabbed the wrong study....
    - http://www.biosicherheit.de/pdf/aktu...tudie_2008.pdf
    and
    - Institute for Responsible Technology - Genetically Modified Soy Linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality (yes, this is more like a blog, but it links a number of the papers)

    That's fine, read my sig. Jokes on him that, EVEN IF that is a joke, it had links to articles concerning OTHER human-animal hybrids.

    Well, is it REALLY going to be "Human" milk coming out, or is it going to be a "simulation" that more closely resembles human milk???

    Is that product going to be safe for consumption?? If yes, do you have any sources that corroborates this belief?

    GM eating rodents children do not grow as quickly as those that have not eaten GMO foods.

    1 - In foods : it's too late for corn, the VAST majority of corn grown in north america (at least, if not most of the world) is already GMO, you can't put that genie back in the bottle... well, let's say 50 years down the line it becomes determined without ANY doubts that this GMO corn is now a toxic plant, there are implications to removing corn from people's diets.

    2 - in animals: If you have a human-animal hybrid and that animal gets infected with a certain virus that cannot affect humans, and in the animal evolution has rendered the virus little more than a nuisance. Well, if it infects that animal hybrid, it allows the virus to adapt to human genetics and now this virus becomes a novel human virus, which because humans have never been exposed to this virus can be MUCH MORE detrimental than in the animal alone.

    3 - While there have been advances in our understanding of genetics, I'm all but certain that we have not reached the point where we understand the "code" that determines how genes replicate / combine across generations. So, while we might have an animal that is normal THIS generation, but we don't know enough to say what the risks might be 20-30-50 generations down the line... there might be some combinations that will lead to the animal becoming sterile, or mutated somehow, or all sorts of problems.

    I can't imagine what some of these creatures would look like full grown... of course they probably don't let these things go beyond the embryo stage.

    Did you see 28 Days? They created a zombie virus in a lab, and it came from a monkey or chimp or something. I am going to find my Zombie Survival Guide, tin foil hat, and check my supplies, just in case.

    (PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers from the University of Wyoming have developed a way to incorporate spiders' silk-spinning genes into goats, allowing the researchers to harvest the silk protein from the goats’ milk for a variety of applications. For instance, due to its strength and elasticity, spider silk fiber could have several medical uses, such as for making artificial ligaments and tendons, for eye sutures, and for jaw repair. The silk could also have applications in bulletproof vests and improved car airbags.

    Scientists breed goats that produce spider silk

    All but certain huh? Yeah, instead of actually getting EDUCATED about these things, let's just go with the gut. It works so good for everything else.

    And let's just ignore the series of links, the topic at hand, and actually making a point and instead just find some non-issue that we can pretend to have knowledge about something without actually saying anything...

    But let me clarify; I phrased it like that, specifically, because public knowledge is that we have only barely grasped decoding and mapping the genome... And since I can't speak for the knowledge obtained in these secret labs (that are admitted to exist), so, I can only use my gut to say that there might be greater knowledge, but if you've got information to suggest that our mastery of genetics is more advanced than my perception then b all means provide this information for the rest of us.

    If I want human milk, I go straight to the source.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
