Yet Another Mod for Your Pig: Omega-3 Bacon is Here!

Apparently a group in Pittsburgh has made a transgenic pig that produces omega-3 fatty acids, the building blocks of the elusive "good fats" normally found only in flax seeds, fish and those super-pricey eggs that come in the fancy container. Of course, you could just eat fish, but pigs are a much more subservient bunch and besides, modding your food is way cooler than going orgo. Not to mention it gets scientists into Nature Biotechnology.

Does that mean you can deep fry stuff in Omega-3 FA now? Awesome.
Good news for all those Atkins freaks too.
