For the first time ever, scientists in China have successfully created a living human kidney.. Using a 3-d Printer.
The printed kidney is only a fraction of the size of a normal human kidney… which are about the size of a fist.
But scientists say about 90 percent of the cells on the printed kidney are alive.
The printed kidney is also capable of breaking down toxins .. just the way normal kidneys can.
Researchers say it may still be a few years – before we start seeing this technology being used in actual hospitals.
