Green Glowing Piglets

Green Glowing Piglets

Scientist from a Chinese university have said 2 out of 11 piglets born from genetically altered cloned pigs have inherited the genes that make them glow fluorescent green under ultraviolet light.

The original glowing pigs were genetically altered by adding genetic material from jellyfish to help the study of stem cell research.

The scientists continue to say that this research will help to study human disease…

Glowing green pigs do sound fun, but I must confess I am struggling to understand how genetically messing with animals can really help combat human diseases!

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.

    Well the jellyfish would explain the glowing then, I wonder if there is any other wacky side effects to the glowing..weird.
