Yale researcher Ben Chan spends a lot of time doing what most people would avoid at all costs. He travels the world collecting sewage samples. And he’s found that there are things hiding in our sewers. And not just clown or mutant turtles: potentially life-saving cures for antibiotic-resistant infections.
Twenty people die every day in the U.S. waiting for an organ transplant. There aren’t enough organs for the 100,000 people waiting for one. And there likely never will be… unless we can find a better way to source them. However, a team of scientists has figured out how to grow human organs in pigs. It might make you feel weird. But it also might save countless lives.
