Human Organ Ranching

Chimera: an organism composed of two or more genetically distinct tissues.  In this case a goat with human stem cells.

The franken-goats are going to grow entire human hearts, livers, kidneys or any other part needed for transplanting.

But the NIH put the kibosh on the science because they feared goats, sheep and even mice might inherit human kidding.

Still, some 20 such creatures have already been made and funding from the Army and other sources is pouring into the effort.

Organ ranching, folks - it's coming to a hospital near you soon...
