Scientists graft human head onto a pig's body

Scientists in America have successfuly grafted the head of a human onto the body of a pig. Dr I Kidyu said after his success "This is a significant step for medicine".

Although alive, the head was not fully functional and displayed considerably reduced cognitive ability.

Some of you may find the photo disturbing so I haven't posted it here. If you do want to see it CLICK HERE
