Will bacon be the next “health” food?

Mad scientist Jing Kang modified pig genes to make them produce omega-3 fatty acids.

Mad scientist Jing Kang modified pig genes to make them produce omega-3 fatty acids.

According to a recent article on CNN.com, scientists are banking on pigs as the next source of omega-3. In an attempt to create the ultimate American “health food,” genetic engineers have crossed pig DNA with that of the roundworm to create a pig high in the fatty acids known to promote brain and heart health. Nevermind that the genetic engineering does nothing to rid pigs’ flesh of high-cholesterol and fat content.

The future of genetic engineering could hold interesting things for vegans too. In the same article, CNN reports that Monsanto and DuPont are trying to create plants that will produce cooking oil with higher yields of omega-3.
