A powder nick-named "Pixie Dust" is being used to save the limbs of war heroes who have been wounded in Afghanistan.

Surgeons have already used the dust to save several soldiers so badly mutilated that they were at risk of amputation.

Made from pig bladders it has the ability to help the human body grow new tissue to replace large areas of a leg or arm destroyed by blast damage.

Made from pig bladders...

Lets see if the doctors remain "culturally sensitive" and never use this on a Muslim.

We should include pixie dust in minute concentrations in our nations water supply.

Ant let the Muzzies know that we do so.

Pixie dust was developed by scientists at the Centre of Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh and one of their successes was to grow a completely new finger tip including blood vessels tissue, skin and finger nail for a man who severed it with the propeller of a model aeroplane

Sounds better than stem-cells.

It does sound better than stem cells! Could they use this on a spinal fracture? Interesting questions.

Forget the bombs. The drones sprinkle the piggie dust over the training camps. Maybe they will grow snouts and be easy to spot in the markets!
