Regarding chimeras

“Two teams of scientists hope to be able to create stem cells from their work that could unlock the secrets of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The so-called chimeras will be 99% human and 1% cow, and will be destroyed after 14 days”, writes Daily Mail.

I blogged about genetic engineering a while back and expressed my views there. I am still fond of stem cells work when it’s really needed. I am just not so sure that this is the only way to battle Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Maybe it is, I don’t know.
