Growin' Yer Own

New Scientist is carrying this summary of a new development in stem cell research:

Silicon breast implants could be replaced by tissue grown from a person's own stem cells within a decade, suggests new research.
Implants grown from stem cells could provide a safer alternative to silicon or saline implants, which can rupture and also interfere with breast cancer detection. They could also be aesthetically superior, keeping their shape and size for longer than artificial inserts, which typically shrink by 40% to 60% over many years, through spreading.

The spam potential is just, well, staggering.
