Medical Miracles

A few years ago a guy cut off the tip of his finger down to the first knuckle in a propeller. His brother
who worked in a lab doing experiments sent him some white powder and told him to sprinkle it on
the lost finger tip every couple of days. To the amazement of the man who cut his finger off and his
brother four weeks later like a miracle or something out of a science fiction comic book the lost
finger grew back. No scars were visible and the finger looked and worked as it had before the
accident.

Science is on the cutting edge of medical miracles all the time but in the 21 century it seems we are
really making head way into the future. The miracle white powder contained part of a pigs bladder
among other interesting additives which were being tested and the brother thought maybe he could
help his four fingered brother.

The Army since then has been doing some testing on soldiers who have lost fingers and limbs from
war. How the study is progressing is being kept hush, hush, but if we can grow back fingers I am
sure the government has its own experimental testing going on with much bigger organs.
The extent of these tests are being kept very secret and under lock and key for the moment at least.

There is a lab that scientists are calling the body factory that are actually growing body parts in it as
I type this article. A scaffolding is built in the right shape of the part needed then tissue is added to
the mixture and in a few weeks or months when the scaffolding dissolves the organ is ready for
transplant. Human body parts made from human tissue.

They are also experimenting on transplanting these home grown organs into the humans they were
grown for. There are many good reasons for this, one being that if this is possible then maybe there
will be no need for rejection drugs because these organs are made from the patients own tissue.
The need for organ donation will also not be as highly needed as it is now, especially if there is some
time before the patient needs a new organ. Of course if there is no time to wait then an organ
donor will be necessary.

Scientists have very high hopes that one day on the horizon not only organs can be grown in a lab
but also nerves and tendons lost in such cases as spinal cord injuries and paralysis.
At this point and doing my own research on where these studies are headed I do believe that in a
few years it will be a normal thing to grow your own body parts needed when your other ones
become lost by injury or diseased.

What we thought about as children and science fiction stories is now becoming a reality for the
world and each one of us. The modern world is becoming more and more of a reality in the field of
medicine and beyond.

Link exchange is nothing else except it is just
placing the other person’s blog link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do similar in support of
