GM Pigs Developed by Chinese Researchers Release Less Pollution: Report[Jun 25, 2018]

Chinese researchers have found that genetically modified (GM) pigs have an improved ability to digest two key nutrients in their feed, which means less manure is released to the environment. Pigs account for more than 60 percent of Chinese people's demand for meat, but they also exert major environmental pressure.
