150 human animal hybrids secretly grown in UK labs

On July 23, 2011 by stratagem

Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.

This legalised the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos.

Scientists say the techniques can be used to develop embryonic stem cells which can be used to treat a range of incurable illnesses.

Phantom Report: Anyone with common sense can investigate bioinformatic details [ Expasy ] of humans and animals. i.e. Diseases in animals do not translate to disease in humans. The genetic and protein sequences are different between humans and animals, these minor changes in sequence diversity [mutations: genetic or proteomic] change the function and activity of the single protein. A mouse is a mouse. A human is a human. Both diverse in nature. UK researchers are meddling in chimeric arena to create hybrids not found in nature.
