Combining Human+Animal DNA is Approved

So, apparently, the UK has approved the combining of human and animal DNA. Here's why:

In researching stem cells for the purpose of curing, up to now, uncurable diseases, scientists study human embryos and development and what effects slight changes at the molecular level have. They can use human eggs, but most human eggs are used for fertility programs. Additionally, the donation process has some risk associated with it, so scientists have begun to use cow and rabbit eggs instead to undertake the same research. The resulting 'cybrids', as they are called, are 99.9% human and 0.01% animal and are required to be destroyed in 14 days.

Anyone ever see "The Island of Dr. Moreau"?
