(Worthy News) - Scientists in California are working on a way to reduce organ transplants and rejections: Growing embryos in sheep and pigs containing human patients' cells.

In a transplant breakthrough, scientists at the University of California said they have achieved sheep embryos in which around one in every 10,000 cells was human.

The researchers presented preliminary findings Saturday at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's annual meeting in Austin, Texas. Last year, the same researchers introduced human stem cells into early pig embryos, producing embryos with about one in every 100,000 cells being human. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]

  1. "Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

    ""No, I'm, I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way."

    ""God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs. God creates Man, Man destroys god. Man creates" monsters.

    Except for that last word, all said by the Ian Malcolm character, in Jurassic Park (the first one).

    Again, just because the ungodly tell us something, doesn't mean they're wrong.

    Science has a name for what a being made of two different individuals, or two different species is. It's called a Chimera. Making one using human flesh is just a sick and ugly thing. Why are some humans so afraid of dying that they will allow something like this to happen using their own cells?

    Perhaps they need Jesus more than new parts? That one gets my vote.
