Guelph, Ontario Factory farming is one of the leading causes of water pollution. Professor John Phillips of Guelph University has genetically engineered environmentally friendly pigs, nicknamed Enviro-Pigs. They were given the ability to produce a new enzyme that helps them digest phosphorous, and as a result, produce one-quarter the amount of phosphorous in their manure as normal pigs.
