According to Fox News:
It’s now possible to replace a defective, damaged, or diseased penis with a penis grown in a laboratory — in rabbits.
But the finding promises an amazing new treatment for infants, boys, and men who suffer penis disfigurement. The replacement organ would be grown on a penis-shaped matrix seeded with cells from the patient’s own body.
There appears to be no truth to the rumors that the artificial penii look like Bill O’Reilly. It’s odd that this was done at a Baptist university in North Carolina. An hour south, and the procedure would have been illegal. And in a related story, the Southern Baptist Convention issued a statement banning the research because they’re afraid it will lead to dancing.
