Organs are hard to find. If you need an organ transplant, you need a donor. And to have a donor, you need a fresh dead body with same blood type and same complex other factors. And this is hard to find, and people can wait month to get a transplant. This is where pigs come into play. Pigs and humans are not very différents, and we have the technology to create pigs with human organs. Let the pig mature, you have a fresh human organ ready to transplant.

Cases in point:
• McDonalds Japan recently released a new menu with "international" burgers representing countries. They claimed Kalbi burger as Japanese (written in hiragana too not katakana which is used to describe foreign terms).
• They tried to claim kimchi, "kimuchi" (Japanese pronunciation), as an official Atlanta Olympic food
And the list goes on and on: kimchi fried rice (yes, for real), 냉면, 닭갈비, etc. There's a myriad of search results when just typing these keywords and Japanese claim.
I just made some comments in r/Chicago in a thread asking locals recommendations on restaurants based on their ethnic background.
