Is There A Way To Mend A Broken Heart?

I think it finally happened. We just may have an answer to the Bee Gee's first question.



British-based researchers claim they may be just a decade away from perfecting a way to persuade the heart to rejuvenate – a process thought to be impossible just five years ago.

According to The Telegraph, researchers at University College London have discovered that a protein known as thymosin Beta 4, key to heart growth in the young, appears to reawaken dormant stem cells in the organ of adults.

They now hope to begin human trials in a few years after experiments on mice showed that it improved the performance of the heart by as much as 25 per cent.

Yeah, yeah.. I know. But the real question is - how can loser like me ever win?
