The world’s first transplant of a human head was successful

18-hour operation to transplant a human head was successful. Now remains the case for small – to repeat the same thing on a living person.

Today, November 17, the Italian Professor Sergio Canavero told reporters that the world’s first transplant of a human head was held in the China lab and was conducted on the corpse. He stressed that doctors were able to restore blood vessels, nerves and the spine.

«We are born, we grow, we age and die. For millions of years humans evolved, and during that time killed 110 billion, said in his revolutionary speech Professor. Is genocide on a massive scale. We have entered the age when they can control their own destiny themselves.»

«Rehearsal» transplantation held Chinese physician Ren Xiaoping together with his team. We will remind, last year he was able to transplant the head of a monkey.

Many experts have criticized this experiment, considering that it has no great scientific or medical value, and questioned the moral principles of Professor Canavero.

Dr. James Fildes, leading researcher at the University hospital transplantation Centre in South Manchester questioned whether such an operation:

«Alarmingly, all the efforts seem focused on trying to achieve immortality, but to carry out such a transplant for one person, someone else must die.»

As reported by News Week, Chinese authorities that support this procedure are betting on the fact that successful transplantation will demonstrate to the world the dazzling level of technological achievements in the country.

But the Chinese themselves are unlikely to respond positively the very idea of transplantation of the head or other parts of the body in regard to cultures and spiritual traditions. This is due to the fact that in China the bodies and the dead body belong to the parents, so the donation they are not common.

It should be noted that according to the latest Russian Valery Spiridonov, who agreed to participate in the world’s first transplants of head, reported that at the moment the preparation for it stopped.

Head transplant surgeon Sergio Canavero is a dangerous medical maverick or revolutionary?
