Humanity’s Greatest Threat | Human/Animal Hybrids

The discoveries of new species by cloning human with animal hybrids are humanity’s greatest threat. British scientists have secretly generated more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos.

 The Daily Mail gleaned an exclusive look at the figures which show 155 "admixed" embryos with human and animal genes have been concocted since the 2008 Human Fertilization Embryology Act. 

This legalized the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilized by a human sperm; ‘hybrids’, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos. 

Conducted at King's College London, Newcastle University, and Warwick University, scientists say the experiments can be used to produce embryonic stem cells that treat a host of illnesses.
