Genetic research

The Australian reports the creation of regenerating mice.

Okay, all you people who complain about genetic research? Shut up. This is amazing. Imagine the possibilities: if you got a bad case of athlete's foot, and you couldn't get rid of it, you could just cut off your feet. The new ones wouldn't have athlete's foot. Lung cancer? Cut out the left one, and once it grows back, cut out the right. Anything with a "spare" can be readily removed simply by taking out one at a time.

How about this: hospitals hire people with very rare tissue types and provide regeneration therapy in return for having these people on call when an emergency transplant needs to be made. (I'm assuming we won't be able to give this sort of treatment to everyone.) No more waiting lists. Just put your tissue type and desired organ into the system, which tells you what hospital has someone with that tissue type and that organ on the payroll. You fly out, get the surgery, and fly back.

The implications are astounding. I'm hoping we have this available to human beings within my lifetime. It would really rock.
