"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
