Brilliant doctors in Brazil have started using the fish skin of the Tilapia to treat burn patients. The treatment, which is part of a clinical trial there, is said to reduce healing time by several days.
While this medical breakthrough is amazing and more cost effective, there are environmental implications, too. Would this lead to more fish farming? What would be done with the fish? Would the fish be GM? Could they then harm the body, given the fact that our skin is our body’s largest organ?
What do you think?
