Heart-friendly Bacon?

Filed under: Genetics, Patents, Spam — Jared @ 6:53 am

This snipit from /. is something I can get behind. I like the idea of bacon that makes my heart healthier, as it's an excuse to eat more.

Plus, even better, this is the kind of thing that I can get behind patenting, depending on how they word thier patent. They don't get to patent the C. elegans gene in my mind, but they do get to patent the modification in the pig. Oh well, I'm sure they patented the gene itself, and that some drone at the patent office will just stamp it and throw it in the "approved" pile.

  1. Mmm, bacon. I made bacon and eggs yesterday… and none of this heart-friendly bacon. Man, was it tasty.

    Not so good for me, but that’s ok, because I’m a health food nut otherwise – I’m on a “taco bell and cigarettes for lunch every day” diet right now. I’m gonna live to be 150 years old.
