Now, chickens are laying eggs with cancer-fighting properties in them  

After researchers from the University of Edinburgh spliced a human gene into the chickens’ DNA, the animals began laying eggs boasting a significant amount of two proteins used to treat diseases including cancer in humans - and the process, they say, is far cheaper than current methods of protein production

Now, chickens are laying eggs with cancer-fighting properties in them  They hope the project will one day lead to lifesaving drugs that are much cheaper to make.

Initially the proteins will be used in research […]
