I know that there are some true thinkers in the Pit, so I thought I'd post this. Essentially, scientists have successfully grown a live heart in the lab, from stem cells. So, opinoins?

Pretty damn awesome. Hopefully this will shut up anyone against stem cell research, but I just know it won't.

I swear I've seen a video of something like this, but they used a pig's heart as a scaffold (all the living cells were removed), but best of all, they showed what it acts like when beating with a small electric shock.

Technology is amazing these days.

Here's the easy, DIY process if you want to try it youself

This is abominable!

Stem cells are taken from human fetuses, who are already living things. God has already given them a soul, and harvesting their bodies is the sacriligeous. And obviously the people who have heart disease have been chosen from God to be with him soon. They need to accept their fate and stop destroying the lives of innocent children to save their own and defy God's will!

This.

There was kidneys a few weeks ago, now a live beating heart? Soon we'll be building and utilising and entire working body, and people would rather just die up on their moral high horse.

For real though, this is the devil's work, they should use fetuses born out of wedlock for this.

A beating heart isn't that much of a hassle, if you have the tissue it's pretty easy because if one cell contracts the other cells immediately follow because all the cells are very closely connected (with muscle filaments, but that's detail). Other organs (brains...) are incredibly complex and almost not entirely artificially producable.
Also, I know this probably wasn't meant to be serious, but still I thought I'd share my 2 cents

Quick question, if they succeed doing this with hearts, how high are the chances this'll work with other organs?

I'm not a researcher but I'm going out on a limb and guessing "very high".

For most organs, pretty high. However, like someone above said, an organ like the human brain would be bitch to make.

Sheesh, imagine the shitstorm that would hit when they actually create artificial brains.

There are alot of people with issues surrounding stem cells but you wait till they need a heart, they will soon want it.

yeah I'd think that if a heart is possible then any other human organ short of a brain would be too. I could just be talking out of my arse though. At the end of the day, the heart is a pretty simple lump of muscles.

Considering stem cells are being used to aid recovery in ALS, and it's also cured Sickle Cell Anemia in mice..


...More research is better. Although, it's really the "big" thing at the moment. I see articles from Jacob Hanna and a few others, and frankly, the work they do is amazing. It's not like they're completely ignoring the consequences either.

Hello cure for death.

I think a cure for death would suck. I don't want to die unaturally, but I don't want to live forever. Eventually I'd just be a lump

A man made heart that works? Sweet. I know some people so Stem Cell research is bad and others disagree (I myself don't know what side of the fence I am on) but this is pretty freakin sweet.

A manufactured human brain would be one of the two things A) awesome and functional or B) Worthless and ineffective.

Awesome, scientific advancement is the best thing in the world. Sod the 'ethics' and 'morals'. This research is life saving and could bring around any number of exciting and interesting projects.

I think it's trickier to do it with a heart that other organs.


Why? It only beats. The rest of the organs are more more complex.
