(NaturalNews) If certain crazy scientists have their way, we could eventually see some humans covered in skin that has been bioengineered with animal parts such as spider's silk and goat milk.

Bulletproof vests are widely accepted as a method of ballistic protection, but genuine bulletproof skin has always been a concept meant only for science-fiction movies. It's absolutely heinous and ridiculous to imagine such a notion becoming a reality, but thanks to a sickening development devised by UK scientists, it may be soon become reality: a bulletproof "vest" or human bulletproof skin created by combining genetically engineered goat milk and spider's silk woven into skin cells.

Researchers working with the Forensic Genomics Consortium in the Netherlands genetically engineered goats to produce milk teeming with the same protein found in the webs spun by silk spiders. This milk is then spun and weaved into a material that is claimed to be almost ten times stronger than steel.

Scientists hope to blend this supposedly forcible fabric with real human skin to make what they expect to be a vest "tough enough to stop a bullet." The "spidersilk" project was named "2.6g 329m/s' after the weight and velocity of a .22 caliber rifle bullet.

Bulletproof humans with 'spidersilk' skin?

The "spidersilk vest" idea was taken a step further when researchers asked: why bother with only a vest if we can actually replace real human skin with bioengineered spidersilk protein? One Dutch researcher with the project, Jalila Essaidi, claimed the goal is to eventually replace keratin, the protein responsible for the toughness of our skin, with bioengineered spider's silk.

What makes these scientists think this is a totally reasonable idea - using bioengineered animal parts that have been made in a laboratory in order to create a fake human skin that's bulletproof? Not only is it preposterous, but it's also offensive and a bit frightening to imagine this harebrained idea materializing into reality.

The first stage of this experiment involves growing a layer of real human skin around a sample of bulletproof skin, which takes around five weeks to complete. The whole process is possible by adding the silk-producing genes of a spider to the genome of a human. The outrageous end result, according to these mad scientists: bulletproof humans.

Secret human-animal hybrid experiments are becoming frighteningly prevalent

One hundred and fifty animal-human hybrid embryos were recently produced by mad scientists in the UK (with full government approval) under the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act. The UK's Daily Mail newspaper reported that a committee of scientists sounded the alarm on the operation; it expressed serious concerns over the possibility of the experiments going "too far" and of resulting in a real Planet of the Apes scenario where animals could eventually escape from the lab and reproduce in the wild.

Again, this probably all sounds like science fiction, but it's merely a truly rude awakening: these types of sickening experiments are becoming realities in science. It is not fiction that human-animal hybrids have been produced by these UK scientists for the last three years.

Some of the abnormalities the scientists created were animal eggs fertilized with human sperm, cybrids (or animal cells that are injected with human cell nuclei) and chimeras, a mixture of human cells and animal cells.
