The Guardian have a story on how it may soon be possible to grow replacement teeth using a ball of stem cells!
How cool is that?


The British institution of dentures sitting in a glass of water beside the bed could be rendered obsolete by scientists who are confident that people will soon be able to replace lost teeth by growing new ones. Instead of false teeth, a small ball of cells capable of growing into a new tooth will be implanted where the missing one used to be.
The procedure needs only a local anaesthetic and the new tooth should be fully formed within a few months of the cells being implanted. Paul Sharpe, a specialist in the field of regenerative dentistry at the Dental Institute of King's College, London, says the new procedure has distinct advantages over false teeth that require a metal post to be driven into the jaw before being capped with a porcelain or plastic tooth.

So now stem cells are able to fix eyes and soon teeth...what next?


London: Russell Turnbull, who could not see with his right eye following a chemical attack 15 years ago, has regained vision after a ground breaking stem cell treatment. Scientists and eye surgeons at the North East England Stem Cell Institute restored light to the eyes of eight patients including Turnbull using their own stem cells.

Pretty amazing,and with scientists working on a way to make mucles age backwards(become young again) It may not be too long before Humans can live a whole lot longer than we do now!


Until not long ago, the fountain of youth was just a myth, the stuff fairytales were made of and that us mortals could only dream of. In recent years, the possibility of scientists discovering the secret to eternal youth and health has augmented, they say, even if they are yet to come up with the magic pill. On this note, hopes are high that, one day, a drug that will make muscles young again will be available, as McKnight’s says.
US and Danish researchers analyzed two groups of volunteers, whose muscles (in the thigh) were first weakened by means of a cast. Both groups were asked to work out when the cast was removed, but the most progress in regenerating the muscle was seen in the younger men, because their body was able to create more of the protein needed for this to happen. Based on the findings, researchers are now hopeful that, one day, they will be able to come up with a pill that will do the regeneration part when our body is no longer able to.


Amazing stuff IMO-imagine not having to worry about your teeth,eyes or muscles ageing,we could reach a stage when its perfectly acceptable to see 120 year olds jogging-except they would not look 120.
Lets hope this sort of thing becomes widley avalible to people,and is not confined to the Elites of the world.

Check the date on the reference. May, 2004. This popped up again on several sites over the last few days.

Ah,well spotted Pteridine-didn't see that at first.
Hopefully they ve got closer to perfecting the techniques in the last 5 years.

I have read about this, and it is encouraging. They also are working on an ultrasound device that can regrow teeth.

I have personally had the experience of growing a new tooth without new technology though, and it still remains quite a mystery as to how it happened. To make a long story short, about 10 years ago, I broke a tooth eating a taco, and about six months later I started growing a new tooth in that spot, Little by little, another tooth grew in! It's not quite a full size tooth at this point, maybe a little over 3/4 the size of the old one, but it is a tooth. Believe me, I am nobody special, but It was a obviously a miracle. I know a lot of people don't believe in miracles, but I do - not just because of this situation; I have just always believed in them. I have to say that this one little "thing", for lack of better words, has been enough to help me realize a bit of hope during the past 12 years of extreme stress and physical and mental pain that I have suffered.

So anyway, has anyone else grown a new tooth or ever heard of this happening? I wonder how often this happens - 1 in 100,000 people - 1 in a million?

If I remember right after a decade or more its 1 in 2000 people....that have 3 sets of teeth instead of two. No miracle needed.

I also remember a story years ago of Canadian scientists regrowing teeth, as long s the root is still there, using low frequency sound.

Hopefully someone will one day find out what it is about these few tooth re-growers that allows them to re grow-maybe this could lead to a proceedure where anyone could "grow their own" eventually.

I wonder-are these people who re grow teeth actually "working" properly?
Was that the plan originally-but some random genetic change eradicated the ability that we should al have???

Sharks re grow teeth,maybe we are supposed to?

Are you for real? You mean I can have teeth as white as Hugh Downs?
That is a really great find. I hope the hurry up with hair cells I'm not
bald but it's moving towards thin.

Who won't be happy to read this?
Oh well it was a lot of fun while it lasted.
Maybe we can find a conspiracy going on here somewhere?

How about this-
These stem cell treatments have been secretly used by the elite for centuries,and they have cracked immortality,in their underworld domain built 600 kilometers into the Earths crust they use computers which behave on a level that is incomprehensible to us mortals,
which they use to control thier evil avatars such as the rothschilds,kissenger and bush families.
That keeps the masses busy,while their real plan goes on-the gigantic slave colony on Mars,with its billions of vacuum test tube bred gen-retard blind burrowers digging tunnels deep into the martian crust with their nanowired brains screaming silently as they do so...
into the dark core of oblivion.
Mining for the families.
