Basic biotechnology: Many of the medicines that saves lives and restore gravely sick people to health are made using biotechnology. This in turn is the result of bioengineered cell lines and organisms. This has been a fact of life since the early 1970's. I'm sorry if someone tried to alarm you over 'GMO' or whatever -- this is basic biology. http://www.dnalc.org/view/15929-How-insulin-is-made-using-yeast.html
