Carbon Nanotechnology and Tissue Engineering
By Jon F Cook
Carbon nanotechnology is quickly changing our lives like no other time in history. One day carbon nano-materials will enable us to live longer more productive lives through tissue engineering. This will enable us to basically order parts, such as, kidneys, stomachs, hearts, lungs, and even brains. When ever a body part wears out or becomes cancerous it will be replaced by tissue that was engineered through carbon nanotechnology. We will explore some of the amazing things that have already transgressed concerning tissue engineering, what we can look forward to in the future, if this is going against god, and when will it be going to far.
One amazing breakthrough announced recently was the engineering of spinal cord receptor tissue. This is the tissue that is damaged when someone has a spinal cord injury. It is the tissue that sends the messages from the brain down the spinal cord to give instructions on movement. It is thought that through carbon nanotechnology this tissue can be fined tuned and injected into a spinal cord victims area of injury. This tissue may grow and link with the undamaged receptors thus completing the link. With the spinal cord receptor tissue intact it will be able to transmit the messages from the brain for your legs to walk. This is all being developed with carbon nano-materials and nanotechnology.
Other tissue engineering projects now being tested are growing and developing of lung and heart tissue. One day you may be able to have a heart or lungs grown and stored at a tissue farm. When you are in need of a transplant because of disease or a car accident it will be ready for transplant. These tissue engineering farms will rely on carbon nano-materials for the growth and development of transplants. Carbon nanotechnology will become an established and growing field in years to come.
Our life expectancy will change drastically with the use of carbon nanotechnology and tissue engineering. Some people think we may be able to live forever. If you believe in God, as I do, is this going against him. I do not think so. All throughout the bible people are said to live hundreds of years, a good example is Methuselah, who lived to be 969 years old. I also do not think it is us that is creating life, God is giving us exceptionally smart scientists with a drive for knowledge. This knowledge, along with the application of carbon nanotechnology will hopefully benefit all of mankind.
In the future, with carbon based nano-materials and carbon based nanotechnology, will we have stronger, faster athletes? We we be able to tissue engineer hearts and lung that are bigger? Will this create a super race of humans? One with almost super human power like being able to run faster and farther, jump higher, and hit a baseball farther than anyone has ever done. Will athletes be tested for engineered parts, like they are now being tested for steroids. One can only imagine, but with the use of carbon based nanotechnology tissue engineering there may be no limits.
