The World’s First Human Head Transplant Has Been Successfully Carried Out

Medical science has changed the face of the planet – increasing life expectancy and improving people’s quality of life. It’s only 2017, but in this century we’ve already been able to successfully grow organs in labs and carry out face transplants.

What’s more is that these are only two of the many breakthroughs which have been made in the 21st century. However, the latest medical development is not only remarkable but, until recently, was thought to be biologically impossible.

The world’s first head transplant has been successfully carried out.

Yes, you read that right. In the not-so-distant future, we could be living in a world where the body of our dreams is nothing more than operation away. It turns out that Mary Shelley predicted the future when she imagined Frankenstein’s Monster in 1817.
