Pig Bladder Dust Helps Regrow Limbs Of Wounded Soldiers

Pig bladders contain a substance called extra cellular matrix, which is made up largely of collagen.

Scientists have already used powdered pig bladders help grow replacement human bladders.

But researchers working for the American military realised the substance might also help hundreds of wounded soldiers.

So not only does bacon come from pigs, but they also contain limb regrowing magic? Incredible animals.

  2. In your earlier post about the photos from Vietnam, you mentioned something about fighting that war without the modern technology we have now. Imagine if the military doctors in Vietnam could see all the amazing advances that have been made regarding treatment of battlefield injuries! And for that matter, the technology to prevent injuries in the first place – helmet technology, eye protection, body and vehicle armor, etc. We’ve come a long way in a short time (relative to the history of warfare). Now if we can just figure out how to make people stop trying to kill each other over stupid crap in the first place…

      Yea pretty amazing stuff! I agree, the world would be a lot nicer place if people would just get along. I suppose as long as money and power are sought after, there will always be conflict.

    Be VERY sceptical of this. This field trial is no substitute for peer-reviewed, controlled trials, which these guys have still not done. Therefore all the same reservations apply;


    In other words, they can’t show that their ‘magic’ powder is responsible for jack.
