To what extent this is now happening is variable and questionable. It is sad that public awareness of such issues is seldom voiced by the western activists against genetic engineering. It is in the area of animal transgenics that public awareness and concern is now being expressed. Transgenic animals are those incorporating foreign or modified genetic information resulting from genetic engineering. Genetic modification of animals with ensuing transgenesis may be considered by some on a religious basis as a fundamental breach in natural breeding barriers that nature developed through evolution to prevent genetic interplay between unlike species.

For those who could well benefit from such developments there is enthusiastic support, while others oppose on ethical and moral grounds! There will undoubtedly be major reappraisals of stem cell research as this offers such potential gains to sick individuals. A cautionary word must be said of those overzealous enthusiasts who create unrealistic expectations concerning the capacity of biomedicine to control illness and aging. The all-too-often press statements on the imminent arrival of radically innovative biotechnologically derived therapies more often create false expectations for those with illnesses and signs of aging.
