Sometimes science is used for good. Sometimes science is used for evil. Depending on the depth of your love for bacon, it may be difficult to tell whether the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium is Batman or Bane in this scenario: an international team of researchers has sequenced all of the DNA in a female pig and can now engineer tastier piggies. Of course, animal breeders have long bred all types of livestock for their version of the “ideal” animal; the main concern of this pig DNA project will create healthier pigs. But sciences are also saying it’s possible to toy with the tenderness and fat content of the pig’s meat, as well as the color. I, for one, never conceived that bacon could possibly be more yummy. So I’ll go out on a limb here and ask if these porcine geneticists could try and make eating bacon as healthy as, say, kale. You can do it. I have faith in you, science! [NPR]
