Science may be on the verge of producing a limitless supply of replacement parts by regenerating damaged or aging body parts grown from our own cells. Imagine the implications if we could custom make body parts genetically indistinguishable from our own. Could it eliminate the death sentence for profound birth defects, the need for prosthetics and any shortage of transplant organs?
National Geographic delves into the science of tissue engineering and tracks how scientists are beginning to harness the body's natural powers to grow skin, muscle, body parts and vital organs, even hearts

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
I was so amazed by the research and development in regeneration of human cells and other body parts that I took my copy of this video to a reunion for the Vietnam era Marines, 3rd Bat., 5th in Kentucky on May 18th - 20th, 2012 and showed the whole thing to all of those who were interested. It was a big hit and I'm sure the VA hospitals will be getting some serious questions about the proceedures that might help those brave, wounded soldiers. I sure hope that they can find some help for their injuries. Thanks so much for airing this remarkable program on TV.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
