Human bones grown from stem cells

Scientists have succeeded in growing human bone in a lab using stem cells taken from fat tissue.

The research is aimed at one day providing replacement bones for use in transplants and other operations. It took about a month to grow several inch-long segments of fully formed human bone from the stem cells.

"There is a need for artificial bones for injuries and in operations," said Professor Avinoam Kadouri. "We use three dimensional structures to fabricate the bone in the right shape and geometry. We can grow these bones outside the body and then transplant it to the patient at the right time."

"The development opens the way for patients to have broken bones repaired or even replaced with entire new ones grown outside the body from a patient's own cells."

Methink my insurance wouldn't cover that either So, you complain about Socialism but are not willing to foot the cost yourself? So, because you can't afford anything like it and your insurance wouldn't cover it... you dislike Socialism? Sorry if I've misunderstood but when the alternative to socialism is paying for yourself and you can't afford it, what's your argument?

Sorry if I've misunderstood but when the alternative to socialism is paying for yourself and you can't afford it, what's your argument? I guess you didn't read how it happen right .... lemme ask you something why would I have to pay for the stOOpidity of others?

You're saying it's Socialism's fault people make mistakes, I've heard more crazy things in my time here. This is not what I say nor wrote. In socialist system there are special criteria to be a victim, criteria that I seem to be lacking.
