this is most curious news, the first i've ever heard of face and hand transplants. i feel so sorry for the woman in the picture who had her hands and feet amputated. the threat of rejection and having to go through another amputation really is an unsettling factor, but me, personally, who has all body parts intact, fortunately, can only wonder what a life would be like missing one or more body parts, i always feel sorry for people like this or disabled when i see them on the street. i would imagine the next development and ethical problem will involve stem or other cell rejuvenation of missing body parts. i hear teeth may be a possibility soon.
