Scientists have discovered a way to make people regenerate lost parts of the body – dignity and all.Corporal Isaias Hernandez, a soldier who had more than 70% of his leg blown apart in battle, returned home and was told that his right leg muscle would never heal, and he’d be better off with an amputation. Deciding to keep the leg, Hernandez and clinical researcher Steven Wolf tried a new approach – a teeny bit of pig’s bladder.Called the extracellular matrix, or ECM, it has the power to reawaken a body’s natural healing abilities. By inserting the ECM into his leg – and by combining this with physical therapy – Hernandez regenerated the greater part of its muscle; today it’s as strong as his healthy leg.Pig’s bladder is basically the key to Wolverine-like healing abilities.(Net search)

Salamanders,Geckos, Starfishes, lizards many other animals can regenerate their lost organs.

What would have been if humans could also (any organ)?

I am a layman.

Maybe if God still remembered the clever trick that He had built
into the lizard just ONE DAY before fashioning Adam,
we wouldn't have been waiting for this new-fangled
process A FEW THOUSAND, if not MILLIONS of years.

Sometimes I wish there existed some kind of god.
