Breakthrough Device Heals Organs with a Single Touch

08/07/2017 12:31 PM

This sounds too good to be true...

"Researchers have developed a device that can switch cell function to rescue failing body functions with a single touch. The technology, known as Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions."

There is a lot of "science" writing these days in which the title or headline does not match the contents of the article.

I could be wrong, but it sure sounds like a hoax. It's hard to tell, the articles are dumbed down for people like me that have no expertise in this area.
