How to Build A Human Heart

Today on Far Future Horizons we look at the future of medicine and the wonderful possibilities of regenerative medicine – the growing of replacement organs and body parts.

Using human cell technology, scientists are imagining a time when we can customize the human body and grow limbs like tomatoes.  Having famously cloned a sheep, the next frontier is the human body.  Cloning is not the target market. Rather, the demand comes from those who are already living wanting to regenerate their body parts.

This technology has the ability to eliminate birth defects, prosthetic limbs, and even organs.

National Geographic delves into the science of tissue engineering and tracks how scientists are beginning to harness the body’s natural powers to grow skin, muscle, body parts and vital organs, even hearts. If we can grow our own hearts: what does that mean for humanity?
