Organs Will Be Grown In Labs, Rather Than Taken From Other Humans
- Hypothetical Timeline: 2040 to 2060
Years ago, a group of scientists made the first-ever lab-formed bladder. It was then used to replace a problematic one in a patient, which turned out to be successful. Lab-made organs like this are a huge part of how the future might look. As everyone knows by now, every nation has a “Transplant List.” This will one day be a thing of the past, as people will need to remove perhaps a cancerous lung and can then replace it with a lab-made lung.
This lung will be formed using their exact tissue, blood type, etc. That ensures the body will not reject it, which sadly happens more than we’d like. This won’t occur with lab-made organs, however. The big organ that will make all others possible is the Kidney. Once scientists can form a full healthy kidney in a lab that lasts long-term, every other needed organ will be a breeze to form. Plus, the organ needed the most on transplant lists is always the kidney anyway. This would save millions of lives!
