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

When I first saw this thread today I thought that it was somebody's April Fool then I noticed the date oops@me
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.
