Chinese Scientists Create “Minotaur”, Produces Human Milk
Just when you thought you heard it all within the twisted world of genetic engineering Chinese scientists spliced human and bovine genes to produce a new species or life form. Within their laboratory alchemists conjured a creature that is likened to the mythical Greek Minotaur. Reminiscent of Mary Shelly’s ‘Frankenstein’, 300 genetically engineered Holstein Friesian cows that resemble their organic counterparts, produce human-like milk from their supple breasts and I just have to say; How far beyond stupid is that??
This is not the first genetic mutation mambo to stretch the limits of sanity but it’s a very bold one. Accepted moral and ethical ideological principals have been tossed to the wind according to legitimate genetic researchers. The blending of human and animal genes was once considered forbidden and very taboo by the medical and scientific communities but that was yesterday. With a relatively high mortality rate only a little better than half of the mutations survive from birth to maturity according to scientists. Likened to a horror movie I shudder to think of what other anomalies and defects the less fortunate creatures endured before they died. Humanity surely has taken a back seat to the pursuits of mad science. Credibility within the scientific community has been compromised on many occasions. Geopolitical and commercial interests dominate many scientific communities and researchers are obliged to cater to their whims or loose critical funding. The truth will be obscured by rhetoric and ultimately ignored and forgotten. Would this be a human rights issue or an animal abuse issue?
Surely this is not pursuant in the name of science by any means. But in a land where humans are forcibly harvested and dissected for their internal organs then left to die, the plight of some teenage mutant bovines with big boobs would fall on deaf and indifferent ears. Morality and ethnics are not high priorities with the Chinese Communist Party and profiteering on the blood of others is their signature. Any maligned statements the party found objectionable would simply be addressed with incarceration, torture and a trip to a slave labor camp. Death is another option but that usually follows months of continuous torture and forced labor. So it makes me wonder what other anomalous creatures these alchemist concocted in secret with their witches brew.
There is no doubt the long term effects of cloning are anyone’s guess and apparently of no big concern. The possibility of inadvertently creating creatures with undesirable or grotesque human characteristics was once the fodder of science fiction movies. Like a 5 year old child with a loaded 12 gauge shot gun, scientists are running amuck with no regard for the potential consequences of their folly. Having the ability to fiddle around with the matrix of life does not mean it is a good thing. This is a frontal assault on established moral principals and common sense. Crossing the boundaries of ethical and responsible science will surely glean a bitter harvest in years to come. It does not get more ‘in your face’ than that, or did you miss it.
The cow/human mutation is a new specie in reality. Would it be ethical for cows to be slaughtered for beef if they are genetically part human? They are no longer bovines in the true sense since they possess human genes. The human donor whose genes were used would be considered a relative of the cow or calves, right? There is one thing you can rest assured of though. You won’t find any labeling identifying mutant GMO meat with human genes in them. Fact is you’ll be hard pressed to find any GMO warnings in the US since most things are already contaminated. You might not want to know anyway because it’s all but impossible to avoid gm products or ingredients.
The thing I find most important on this critical issue about GMO foods is what kind of wine would be appropriate to serve with mutant bovine/human rib-eyes? Actually, that is a no brainer since the obvious answer is a quality red wine of course. I prefer the odd years for some reason. A moderately priced Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon would be an excellent selection I do believe. After all, a good wine will bring out the flavor of the meat. Toss in some GMO garlic and onions with a dash of cesium sea salt and yum. For me the bottom line is the taste because GMO anything is an anemic version of real food, it only looks pretty. As far as Mutant Bovine/Human Franken-Milk is concerned, I think I’ll pass. One researcher did mention that the milk was sort of ‘strong’ tasting, what ever that meant. So that grossed me out even more because it reminded me of blindly chugging a glass of ice cold milk only to discover it was almost cheese, gads. Nothing like drinking a fresh glass of mutant milk that tastes weird I always say. I will just stick to my rBGH/plutonium fortified milk and a bowl of glow in the dark alpha and beta particle enriched Lucky Charms if you please.
GMO: It Almost Taste Like Real Food!
