Creepy tag?  I may have found the Christian Scientist here, folks!

Then you'll be amazed (or horrified, considering the tag) by all the body organs and other things they're trying to grow in research labs these days, silly subby.

So - Red Dwarf were right.

So? I can grow a bone in my pants with only a thought.

Why regrow broken bones? Why not just break normal bones? Seems weird to invest millions in nanotechnology to replicate broken bones when a cheap baseball bat can break regular bones at a fraction of the cost.

Yeah, but that effect only lasts for mere seconds.

What can possibly go wrong?!?!

/Science isn't about why. Its about why not!

Skelegro?  That stuff tastes awful.

I published in that journal last year. When I see it referenced in news articles of cool studies it makes me feel like my paper must be special to be in the same journal.

I didn't get any press outside my institution, but that's ok. I can live vicariously through the success of others just as well.

If it could work for teeth like the article alludes, that would be very awesome.

Regrowing cartilage would be useful to a lot more people.

We've been promised lab grown cartilage for two decades now.  My knees scream for new cartilage every time I push the envelope.

I've seen articles like this since the 1990's promising new ways to heal bones and other injuries. You know what happens if you were to break your arm today? They put you in a cast and wait for you to heal just like they did thousands of years ago. Perhaps the cast is a little better material and maybe they can set the bones a little better but the technology and method is still as old as old can be.

At some point you got to put up or just STFU already. Whenever I read one of these articles now I can't help to think they are trying to sell some scam or get investment money for one of their retarded ideas that would never work when looked at practically.

Only this article is about regenerating bone strength in those who have osteoporosis.

"In a study newly published in Scientific Reports, the researchers describe stimulating bone growth by using nano-sized particles called vesicles to repair and even regenerate tissue. Although in the early stages, this treatment could potentially be used to help regenerate not just bones, but also teeth and cartilage."

Did we read the same article? Yes it talks about osteoporosis but as you can see with the snip above, it talks about much more.

I read the whole thing.
I latched into that part because I have osteopenia, is that ok with you, buddy?

That is fine but then you don't need to turn around and imply I'm some kind of tard because you were having a sensitive moment. I'm sorry you have osteopenia, that sucks. I wouldn't hold my breath for this research. It reads like some marketing whores wet dream. Probably just some jerks trolling for easy money.

Not a sensitive moment, and osteopenia doesn't hurt.
But if you read the comment I was replying to you'll see that comment mentioned bones.

Seconds?  What do you think he is, some sort of porn star?
