A Safer Way To Double Your Assets
Let’s be honest. We live in a world where reality blends voraciously with superficiality. People are constantly seeking ways to not only appear but feel younger and many will go to any length in order to achieve the promise from the fountain of youth. But what about those patients who are plagued with cancer? Those who in a plastic world, can only hold on to remnants of their past when they not only had a youthful body, but a healthy one. Have no fear, Dr. Chris Calhoun is here!
The forty-four year old San Diego native, CEO of Cytori Therapeutics, has come up with an unconventional method of tissue engineering. This discovery could well be one of the most momentous medical advances of the 21st century: the use of stem cells. And not just any stem cells-specifically stem cell enriched adipose (fat) tissues which will be used to enhance, heal, and eventually rebuild damaged organs.
The first industry Calhoun plans to conquer is a popular one: female breast augmentation. Now, women with breasts mutilated by surgery-in addition to those simply unhappy with their natural assets-can grow a new and improved pair, with raw materials harvested from their own body fat!
But breast augmentation is simply one development in the company’s widely ambitious plan: to introduce stem cell medicine to the mass market-and NOT using the ethically fraught kind of cells extracted from human embryos. This translates into panaceas for those threatened by chronic heart disease, heart attacks, kidney damage, etc. We hope Calhoun and his inventive team succeed, because in doing so they won’t just be creating more cleavage! Have YOU helped save the world today?
