    Quick! To The Bar!

    A team of scientists and surgeons at a Melbourne hospital has developed a method of growing new organs within a patient's body. Previously, scientists had only been able to create two-dimensional constructions such as skin. But researchers at the Bernard O'Brien Institute of Microsurgery at Melbourne's St Vincent's Hospital say have created three-dimensional cells. The cells have been grown in a plastic chamber under the patients' skin.
    Who?  ABC News Online.  Who saw it first?  Digg.
    A few things come to mind.
    1.  Hum.  No reason to quit smoking now.
    2.  See the title.
    3.  Uh... why didn't some other medical researchers, like, say, in the United States, figure this out first?
    Oh yeah.  No public money for stem cell research in the U.S.  At least at Harvard.  How ridiculous is that?
    Is personal stem cell harvesting available?
    Can I invent it?

    Unfortunately there are those in power who believe that an embryo is of better use in a garbage can at some medical research facility, instead of using it to enhance someone's life.
