Medical Magic

Between work, a family medical emergency and a nasty cold, it’s been a wild few days.

Everyone survived, and we’re all on the mend. Blogging, however, is taking a backseat to the above demands.

So I give you this: Medical science has seemingly caused organ regeneration in mice through DNA manipulation. Basically, by tweaking one gene, researchers brought youthful vigor to an aging thymus. We all have a thymus, and it is key to a well functioning immune system.

“Living Organ Regeneration ‘First’ by Gene Manipulation”

Implications? What if we could turn back the clock on the human ticker? What if we could make 70 year old organs function like they did 50 years in the past?

My mind is blown so often these days…
