French Paradox

It’s been a while

The cloned piggies are back in the news, and, like we suspected, they are good for you.

In what appears to be an effort to save Omega-3 rich fish from over-harvesting, geneticists have spliced a gene that makes “good” fat from a tiny, bacteriovorous soil nematode called Caenorhabditis elegans, into the nucleus of a fetal pig cell. The result is a healthier slab of bacon: Pork meat that is more Omega-3 and less Omega-6. Mmmmm.

The other other white meat

I love the concession that “…no one knows what their meat tastes like…” How long before we find out? “Hmmm, it’s a bit like pork, but with a piquant undertone of worm... Tastes like chicken.”
