But What About the Cholesterol?
I’ve read a lot of science-fiction stories about societies where technology is biological rather than mechanical, and look forward to the day when a new house can be had simply by planting a seed in the ground, adding water and waiting for your comfortable ten-room gourd to sprout. A cancer treatment dropping out of a chicken’s ass is bound to be an important first step in that direction.
(Having said that, let’s see what stupid advertisements the Googlebots put in the margins of my site here. For two weeks I had nothing but religious-fanatic ads like “God will cure your gout,” and now I’ve got a bunch of links to sites about Parenting. What part of “I’m a childless atheist” do the Googlebots not understand? Maybe if I wrote a few posts about indulging in RED-HOT MONKEY LUST on the decks of the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA while learning how to MAKE MONEY AT HOME after I BEAT A PRE-EMPLOYMENT DRUG TEST, the bots will post some ads which folks here will actually CARE ABOUT, for Christ’s sake.)
Uh-oh. I said “Christ.” That can’t be good.
Anyway, the BBC article about the cancer-fighting chickens is here. I’m sure that within a day or two there will be a follow-up article about a Luddite group arguing that GM chickens are a threat to humanity. I’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy some FREE SOLITAIRE GAMES and QUICK WEIGHT-LOSS PROGRAMS guaranteed to make me LOOK TEN YEARS YOUNGER. Maybe chickens can be modified to lay anti-aging oxidants as well?
