Scientists Create Low-Fat Pigs by Giving Them a Thermal Regulation Gene

Scientists have developed a new genetic technique that allows pigs to regulate temperature by burning fat. By burning more fat, pigs keep their bodies warmer, burning more fat to produce leaner meat. Infrared pictures of 6-month-old pigs taken at zero, two, and four hours after cold exposure show that the pigs’ thermoregulation was improved after insertion‚Ķ
