Transcript of Artificial Organs

Artificial Organs The Ethics So What? The Future Uses for Artificial Organs Artificial Organs offer the FUTURE for medicine. Many remain adamantly against such innovation due to: Stem Cells Imagine if... The Reality: They could possibly offer a cure for...
- Skin Disease through the regeneration of skin
- Diabetes through the replacement of the dieased persons pancreas
- Cancer affecting specific organs or blood such as leukemia How it's done... Growth of 3D cell cultures that act almost like biological legos
-Using magnetic forces to levitate cells while they divided and grew, scientists are able to form tissues that more closely resemble those inside the human body. Scientists are also able to "print" cells out using a 3D printer that uses human cells and a "goop" to hold it all together Tubular Tissue Constructed from Cellular Building Blocks Eventually people if people "wore" out an organ they could simply go to the doctor for a brand new one. - Stems Cells are: Found in all multicellular organisms, that can divide and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. - However many Christians and believers of other major religions believe this allows scientists to "play god". - The downside to this is that stem cells form the major footnote for artificial organs and until recent developments, stem cells were the only way to produce such organs. A half sphere of polymer cubes built by researchers at the MIT-Harvard Division of Health Sciences Tubular Tissue Constructed from Cellular Building Blocks In the future, should your bones crack, you back ache or your heart grow old, you'll be able to simply replace them. Soon, the readability of artificial organs will result in a world that much more free of disease Citations: Hernandez, Javier G.

N.p., n.d. Web. 26 Feb. 2013. Our opinion: We respect the beliefs of others, however we find it ridiculous for religion to hold back suck a miraculous innovation that could offer huge benefits for man kind as a whole By: Brian S. and Kasey L.
