Do You Want To Be A "Human Pig"?

"Pigs may someday provide organs for human transplant surgeries, yet more than a few obstacles must be overcome first." says the banner story in the CNN News entitled "Scientists edit pig genome with goal of human organ transplants". If that statement will be taken literally does it mean that a pig's heart or a pig's liver or a pig's kidney etc. maybe used to replaced a human heart, human liver or human kidney etc? It's really funny how journalist makes a sensationalized and exagerated opening in their news report so it seems. Is this really possible? Would you like your own heart, liver or kidney et cetera be replaced by a pig's heart, liver or kidney? Image source: gizmodo.co.uk

The irony is my favorite dish in my country contains pig's heart, blood and liver. (Sorry for the gorry details guys ) So no, I would never want to be one since that would be like eating myself next time I eat that dish.

Hmmmmm. Well, once it turns out to be a definite process with much success rather than a someday story, I "might" consider it . . . especially if that is the only means to keep me alive. Oink!

The doctors have been using pig heart valves for some time not to replace heart valves in people.
