First ears and now this! This exsperiment was held so "researchers [could] work out how cancer develops." There is no pictures of these mice, only the tissue. I just think this is kind of weird.



Lab mice have grown tissue more usually confined to a bra - lumps of human breast. The growths should help researchers work out how cancer develops.

Researchers commonly use genetically engineered mice to study cancer, but the animal disease differs slightly from the human one. So researchers have sought to transplant human breast tissue into mice to make a better model.

Did you see the human ear grown on a mouse. It's sick.

It's not a functional ear.

I didn't think so, I was just trying to find some humor in an otherwise disgusting image.

Now there's something you don't see every day.

But then again, there's something you never wanted to see in the first place.

It appears that they're moving south on this human body parts to mice thingy...when they hit the navel I'm outta here because I just don't think I'll be able to recover from seeing a vulva-lated mouse.

As sick as it all sounds, the info that comes from this could end up saving a lot of lives some day. Animal rights activists are probably screaming, but how are we supposed to research this stuff? On humans?

Well, let 'em scream. I have had two boobs all my life and they haven't hurt me yet. I don't think the little critter's suffering that much.

I think the only thing we should grow on anything should be organs and stuff because i dont really think a breast or a ear is'nt that necesary...
