    I'll say that medicines can be produced at mass scale at reduced cost. For example before recombinant DNA technology diabetic patients were give insulin extracted from pigs which required their slaughter. But now, a recombinant variety of e.coli can produce human insulin at much greater rate and it's relatively super cheap since you need to grow microbes rather than a whole pig.
