engineering bacon?

so i was watching jon stewart last night (yes, even after his betrayal, because who else is there to watch?) and he brought up the fact that american scientists are genetically engineering pigs to produce the fatty acids that are supposed to be healthier for human consumption (usually found in quantity in fish) than what pigs're naturally endowed with.
somehow, it doesn't surprise me that america, rather than moderating intake of bacon, ham, and other delicious pork products and actually trying to eat a balanced diet, would simply decide it's easier to genetically alter the pigs to provide the obese masses with healthier bacon.
eat right.
walk good.
