We're trying to change the co...

An animal with a human brain, is it a myth or a potential truth in the future? It is sound like such a scientific fiction could become a reality in the near future if the experience of mixing human cells into animal embryos is approved to go ahead. The arguments of the great potentials medical discovery will be for the disease of Parkinson, Alzheimer disease, and potentially growing human organs for harvesting and transplantation!!! It seems like a great promise for advancement of medical world...
