CNN headlines story of using human body to host the growth of new bone
mass. This type of medical innovation is marvelous.

This story is particularly facsinating to me.  When I was 11 years old, I
had to have 1/2 of my jaw removed due to a tumor that was growing quite
rapidly within my facial bone structure.  I had plastic surgery and within
a few years, my jaw grew back because of my age and the fact that I was
pre-puberty and still growing.
