I would like to get some info on that material also. It is very important to be sure that there is no withdrawal problems what it is introduced into a human body.

What material do they use in the printer, and how do they make the material?  That's just as important as the process.

This is actually pretty amazing and could be a massive breakthrough for medical science. Yes, i know it's controversial, but it is the future, especially if we want to provide better medical care for people and make it cost effective and less invasive. Of course, it also seems a bit creepy to be 3D printing human tissue, but it's also quite incredible to think about in terms of how far medicine and technology have come. Thanks for covering this, Cabe!
