World's first human-monkey hybrid created

A team of Spanish scientists working in China have injected human stem cells into the embryo of a monkey.
With transplant patients often having to wait years for organs, scientists have been looking for increasingly unorthodox ways to try and meet this ever-growing demand.

The idea of crossing a human and a monkey to produce internal organs suitable for transplant has been floated before, however in most countries such experimentation is considered illegal.

Although the experiment in this particular case was halted before the resulting creature could be born, scientists elsewhere have condemned the research as immoral. The biggest concern is that some of the human stem cells could make their way to the brain, potentially leading to consciousness.
"We are now trying not only to move forward and continue experimenting with human cells and rodent and pig cells, but also with non-human primates," said Juan Carlos Izpisua who lead the research.

"Our country is a pioneer and a world leader in these investigations."

Convincing others to pursue such a controversial line of research however is likely to represent something of a challenge in of itself.

Oh now we changed subject to food. Maybe after harvesting the organs, they could eat the rest (brain, nipple, ass) of the hybrids like some random cow, no different  Put them in a cage, make them make love with other hybrids at early age (like 13) and give birth to babies. Grow the babies and kill the parents. The generations go on. Like chickens in cages. So instead of farming eggs, we farm organs. ... ... Once upon a time, there's a woman who takes care of the hybrids; encounter a handsome one and looks 95% like human. She has pity for him and as time goes by, she falls in love with him wit... [More]
