A third team of researchers has found a way to convert an ordinary skin cell into valued embryonic-like stem cells, with the potential to grow batches of cells that can be directed to form any kind of tissue.

Their study, published on Sunday in the journal Nature, shows the approach is not a rare fluke but in fact something that might make its way into everyday use.


If this can be easily done it may elimate the need for using embryos and destroying after a giant leap forward.

Welcome to the future? need a new body part? just grow one in the lab! looks like your original part and best of all no rejection from surgery because its your tissue used.

Welcome to the future.
