A recent  discussion with a researcher here at UT, who, at a conference, 
saw a  presentation by a doctor using stem cells to grow a new tooth, in situ,

Hope you are  well.

An interesting graphic about global  warming  exists from an atmospheric 
researcher at  UAlabama-Hunstville.  Don't recall  his name.  Search at  will. 
 2000 years of data???  Warming is a  long period natural  phenomenon???  
Milankovitch cycle???

A  news item I've seen lately discusses  success growing whole breasts in  
the laboratory.  Not just one tissue or  another, but whole  breasts.  
Guess this is being done for research, but  perhaps  someday for mastectomy 
or transplant purposes??.  Clearly we are   somewhat able to grow some body 
organs.  What's next --- growing whole  arms  or legs for 
Good luck!!!!  Grown  from STEM cells  from an affected 

Apparently it is difficult/not  possible for someone with a  brain 
injury to regenerate brain tissue.   Perhaps someday  someone will grow 
tissue outside of the body (from STEM   cells??) in the laboratory.  It's 
alive, it's alive!!!  This  would  help cure possibly many diseases.  Mental 
retardation,  ALS???, Parkinson's  disease, Cerebral Palsy and many others.  
An  adept surgeon could install  the brain tissue grown in a laboratory  out
side of the body???  It may be a  while until this happens.   Patients in 
wheel chairs for years might walk  again???  Hope  so.
