top five medical breakthroughs

1 SPINACH LEAVES COULD BE TRANSFORMED INTO BEATING HUMAN HEARTS Scientists at Worcester Polytechnic Institute may have discovered how to turn spinach into a working human heart. The revolutionary discovery offers a new way to grow a vascular system, which has been a major roadblock for tissue engineering. Through a process which strips the cells from plants, researchers turned the spinach leaf into a clear cellulose structure that happens to have a similar structure to human blood vessels. Scientists believe that once they attach the plant structure to a blood source, the body might be able to use that to create new tissue around it, repairing damage from injury or disease. 2 GROW A BABY IN YOUR LIVING ROOM? Scientists are working on an intelligent, Internet-connected incubator called the “Par-to-ri-ent pod”. It’s portable…

kirsten dunst challenges ageism in hollywood

She was also nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe for her performance in the second season of Fargo. But that clout goes only so far in Hollywood’s maledominated, youth-fixated environment, Dunst tells Variety. Sharing the struggles she’s faced while kicking off her directorial debut – a long-delayed adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, starring Dakota Fanning – Dunst says:…
