Lost a Limb? Ask the Government For A New One!

I first heard about this treatment on the Science Channel’sPopSci’s Future Of” series: on the episode called “Future Of: Superhumans”. In it, they showed a doctor who had discovered that using a growth hormone extracted from pig bladder could make a powder that could regrow limbs.

In the episode they showed a man who had lost a finger and showed how the pig bladder helped him not only regrow the entire finger back (eventually), but also his fingerprint, his nail, and even the creases. How’s that for super healing?

Below, apparently the treatment has been applied to a soldier who lost 70% of his leg. Yeah. Check it out.

  1. Wait. Whoa, whoa… Wait. Extracelluar Matrix?

    I’m really, really glad for Corporal Isaias Hernandez, but this has super villain written all over it. Or super hero. Either way, kind of terrifying… in the awesome way? Whatever–bring on the Mutant Growth Hormone!

    Seriously, thanks for bringing the story to my attention! PS–The site’s looking seriously awesome, sir!

  2. Thanks sir!

    And yeah, this has Norman Osborn & Mr. Sinister written all over it…
