Stem cells from hair follicles.

For Lipstick 

So we’ve known for a while that ADULT stem cells are readily available from hair follicles. Now we’re able to make the Mulipotent Adult Stem Cells, which means they can be converted into damn near any type of tissue the body needs replaced, including nerve tissue.

And, unlike the embryonic stem cells, these carry no risk of rejection and don’t turn into cancer half the time.

This is good. I’m seeing the future. Need a new kidney? Got any hair you don’t need?
