"Everything is possible, the impossible only takes longer" this phrase was counted by Dan Brown, author of best selling novels "The Da Vinci Code" and "The Lost Symbol" and with which each passing day, modern science continues to prove the mantra true by breaking new grounds of human discovery and achievements
A group of scientists in London's Royal Free Hospital and Madrid's Gregorio Marañón hospital have been able to grow body organs such as the nose, larynx, ears and parts of the human heart in the laboratory using cells from a person's cells. This technique seeks to do away with the need of transplanting human organs from other people, thereby reducing the likelihood of organ rejection and long waiting periods for suitable donors.
The scientists have been able  successfully replace a man's windpipe (membranous tube with cartilaginous rings that conveys inhaled air from the larynx to the bronchi), arteries. It is hoped that with time they would be able to successfully grow and replace human hearts, liver, kidneys and other organs in the human body.
