Awesome insight from the inside work.

I can't find the article anymore; but i read an article which says that organs bio-engineered using a person cells still give the same rejection ratio as it is from someone else. They said that they don't know the reason for it and it might cause trouble because they thought that organ rejection should no longer happen if bio-engineered from a person cell.

I can't await the day they announce this to be a reality everywhere. It's not about living forever, but to live a great 80 or 90 years, without dying of stupid diseases..

Long video but worth seeing it. Major breakthroughs in medicine/health future. As a future doctor, I see this along with genetics going to be in our lives soon. #1 It can raise some ethical dilemmas, but even those are out of question at the moment.

Science: Making the our lives easier and amazing.
Religion: Make our lives miserable and misleading.

#9 Just as science can be used to make our lives easier and amazing so can be a religion. Please don't generalise. (vise versa with miserable and misleading:nazi scientists) It all depends on the mindset of people practicing it.

#10 Alcohol hurts not just your liver but your brain as well as other organs.

This is amazing development, however I am afraid that majority of people will not be able to afford it and thus it will be available only for elite class. Repoman anyone?

#11 I am talking about break through like these. This is absolutely amazing because its potential to save many LIVES.... I mean just image the hundreds of thousands whos awaiting their death because there is not available organs.

On the other hand, religion findings will only bring bullshlts like the apocalypse and other things. Just look at the Doomsday prediction, many believers who were misled and threw away many things.

Religions have NOTHING to base on except the MAN MADE BIBLE. Who wrote the bible? HUMAN. What does the HUMAN KNOW? NOTHING MUCH. What does that make the HUMAN? Just another human.

What I don't understand is if for example you're going to replace your failing heart with a factory-grown-one from your cells, won't that one be defective also? If it's a genetic disease you're suffering from, this is not a cure!

#11 Just like Dr. Tyson have said: "The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it."

Everyday the future looks more promising thanks to science and technology, and this is just beginning.

Saving lives is one things but living past 100 its just not living any more!

No matter how healthy you are or how much rework you've had done , Id be happy to live till 80 and have lived my life instead of spending years eating right trying to stay healthy only to get hit by a bus or somethin else :P

This is "faker" than pornstar boobs. First of all, there is no abiotic (purely proteic) "scaffold" that can remain from an organ after "washing" away the cells.
Secondly, An organ is made up of many different types of tissue, so it would need to be introduced manually into all the right places.

I sincerely wish this was true, but unfortunately it's bogus. Too bad they just threw Neil DeGrasse Tyson randomly in there just to give weight to the documentary.
