No pork on his fork?

Without a windy discussion with who, where, when, how and why elements, my executive briefing of an article I read last week is how a recent study indicates we may be one step closer to using animals as organ donors for humans in need. 

One article’s headline was that gene editing could make pig-to-human organ transplants a reality.

An ailing middle-aged man with health problems could clearly be a human in need so the gracefully-aging prospects of this gene editing exploration leave much to my imagination and inquisitiveness.

Questions abound the more thought I give to this future reality.

If a middle-aged man one day receives a pig-donor gut transplant, is it possible he may no longer desire to devour a king-sized rack of baby back barbeque ribs to take the edge off his middle-aged man hunger?

Might it make him shout how there’ll be no pork on his fork?

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
