Researchers & scientists have produced more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British research laboratory.
The hybrids have been produced mysteriously over the past three years by scientists Researchers looking into likely cures for a wide range of sicknesses.
The exposure comes just a day after a group of Researchers scientists advised of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ situation in which work on human-animal formations goes too far.
Past night an activist against the extremes of medical investigation said he was revolted that scientists were ‘dabbling in the grotesque’.
Statistics seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, comprising both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the outline of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.
This legalised the creation of a variety of hybrids, plus an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in which a human nucleus is rooted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are assorted with animal embryos.
Researchers Scientists say the methods can be used to develop emergent stem cells which can be used to treat a range of incurable diseases.
Three labs in the UK – at King’s College London, Newcastle University and Warwick University – were decided licences to carry out the research after the Act came into force.
All have now stopped generating hybrid embryos due to a lack of funding, but scientists trust that there will be more such work in the future.
The figure was exposed to crossbench peer Lord Alton following a Parliamentary question.
Last night he said: ‘I argued in Parliament in contradiction of the creation of human- animal hybrids as a matter of principle. None of the scientists who looked before us could give us any explanation in terms of behaviour.
