Happy Halloween …. this scared me when I first read it. The cold, matter-of-factness about the statement truly bothered me. This book was published in 1985, so at the time this was a statement of supposition. As we know, this is now just the tip of the iceberg in genetic food manipulation.


” ‘The future of the embryo business should be almost like an assembly line,’ says Charles Subnik, Chairman of the Board at Genetic Engineering Inc., a Denver-based livestock genetics company. ‘If we can create an animal that would have greater milking capabilities or greater capabilities of converting feed to beef, or an animal that will have twins consistently, that really is where the embryo business is going.’ “

-quoted in “Altered Harvest” by Jack Doyle
