Scary animal stories - or yet another reason why I'm glad to be vegetarian

Personally, I fundamentally oppose genetic modification. My general rule is that we shouldn't do things that we aren't sure couldn't lead to mass destruction (e.g., messing with nuclear power, messing with genetics outside of extremely secure and isolated labs) or that we don't know how to clean up after (e.g., nuclear power, introducing modified genetics into the wild).

Further to that, Stephen Strauss reports that an important story, about experimental GM pigs being accidentally mixed in with food livestock feed, was largely overlooked.

Thanks to buddy Glenn for forwarding this.
