Beware ManSheepMonkey!

Japanese scientists are growing monkey organs on sheep -- but they have a really good reason, I promise!

They’re trying to learn how to grow human organs on sheep for transplants, including hearts, livers, pancreases, and skin. Pretty cool, huh? Thousands and thousands of lives saved.

All thanks to the horror of stem cells.

(Too bad none of these stem cell breakthroughs ever happen in the US. Hopefully, that’s about to change.)
