He noted that another interesting addition to the medical field is the “virscan blood test”, which means you can now have your viral infection history diagnosed from a single drop of blood. In certain countries, it is possible for persons to print body parts in 3D.
Other topics discussed included stem cells and stem cell research, Alzheimer’s treatment, defective organ treatment, cancer treatment, spinal cord injury treatment and juvenile diabetes treatment.
