Today's Science Fiction....Tomorrow's Reality

An Italian neuroscientist claims he is ‘laying the groundwork’ for the first full human head transplant.

Dr. Sergio Canavero of the University of Turin believes advancing cell technology makes reconnecting the spinal cords possible, the breakthrough to a ‘successful’ transplant.

Dr Canavero’s paper, published in the open access journal Surgical Neurology International,  outlines a plan to cool the subjects’ head and spine then use clean cuts to severe the two spinal cords and drain the transplanted head of blood.

The two spinal cords would then be fused with an inorganic polymer glue and the heart of donor body ‘restarted’.

Doctors would have just one hour to reconnect the donor head, so that the brain is not starved of oxygen.

"It is my contention that the technology only now exists for such linkage". he writes.
 




So, who wants to go first??!



I guess, overall, it would be better than replacing each individual part like they did with Joan Rivers.

1.  It came from Europe in the 1800s.

2.  At that time, creating this food was expensive and labor-intensive and generally not available to the average person.

3.  Ironically, some dentists were instrumental in inventing machinery making this food more readily available to the average person.

Answer:  Cotton Candy

Machine-spun cotton candy was invented in 1897 by the dentist William Morrison.  Joseph Lascaux, a dentist from New Orleans invented a similar cotton candy machine in 1921.
