Growing new lungs
Below is an article I was trying to post, but it just seemed to post the link and not the first few graphs, as I would have preferred. It's about research going on to help those of us who will need lung transplants one day be able to obtain new lungs built from our own stem cells. This would be a huge advance as currently there simply aren't enough lungs to go around for everyone that needs them.
