RE: New organ grown from stem cells.
That's awesome! Thanks for sharing the news. Now I feel confident using sharp tools once again, for if I am to lose an appendage I will be able to make my own out of myself. Welcome to the future. We're going to be like reptiles who can grow back limbs, only we will have to go to a lab for a few hours first. So not as cool, but still pretty sweet.

Don't get to excited, they can only grow a windpipe, it is still going to take several years before they can grow hearts and lungs.

We have grown hearts with stem cells, but with a scaffold.

RE: New organ grown from stem cells.
I wonder what those ultra conservative Christians are thinking now that Europe and their "evil commie universal health care" has beaten the US to the future of medicine.

If it wasn't for people like Bush and those Christians fighting against stem cell research it would be the US that would be leading the way in stem cell technology and treatments. Its amazing how the decisions of one idiot can change the world in such a big way.

We still have a long way to go with growing organs. Only managed to grow a mouse heart - which is more simple and smaller.. Might still take a while before human hearts can be grown.

Man i missed you guys.

This is great news.

Also, the complexity of a mouse heart isn't much different than that of a human.

Oh, I wouldn't say that.

I think there's plenty to be excited about.

This is why I haven't bothered to have a second genital surgery =p

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
