Small changes can create big results, especially in the realms of biotechnology and medicine. This is especially true in the case of Gal-Safe pigs. Designed to remove the alpha-gal sugars found in pig cells, these genetically modified organisms promote social and economic sustainability in the food and medical industries. However, many still argue about the ethics of this creature's creation and the ultimate impacts it will have on the earth. Explore this case study to learn more about this revolutionary technology.
