  1. Seeing as it was culled from the “Weekly World News” section of Yahoo, I’m assuming it’s probably not true. 😉

  3. Meat tree?! Come on…….. Do u guys (/girls) actually believe that ???????? First off it was found in da Entertainment part of yahoo (*hint *hint). Second, u can’t take cells from cattle n place them in plants!!!!! At this time it is genetically impossible! Nor will it be possible in our lifetime…. CYA!!!!!!!!!

    P.S.: u guys should of finished high school!

  5. Hey, Dumbass (ie wtfiswrongwitmeh)-
    Using todays genetic engineering technology, you can ANY section of DNA and splice it into ANY other genome. The genetic code is (very nearly) universal amoung prokaryotes and eukaryotes. They didn’t take any of the cells from the cattle, they just took sections of genetic information coding for meat protein and replaced the sections of DNA that codes for fruit protein. The concept is not unthinkable.
    (Oh yea, and if you question my knowledge on this subject, consider this. I am working on modifying the genome of a certain strain of lab mice. I actually do my own genetic splicing. I’ve got a little bit of background on this topic….)
