    I see it being 15 years before this is doable....probably 30 before it's affordable.

    Here is our cure for obesity! LOL Actually ya it would be cool for building skeletal muscle but think about it, we aren't THAT far off from being able to artifically make organs and body parts!

    Hey hey some people are already using baboon hearts and pig organs to keep them alive until there's a donor so turning fat into muscle can't be too far off. Plus I heard that fat cells may make a good replacement for stem cells...
