Amputees could one day re-grow their missing limbs, according to researchers at Imperial College London.

    i am thinking that now ATOS(they are still involved in DLA/PIP assessments arent they? or going to be.) and their ilk are going to jump on this and make even more amputees “FIT FOR WORK”because they may grow limbs back at sometime in the future. in spite of it not being for years ………..IF…… happens at all

    Reblogged this on Britain Isn't Eating and commented:
    IDS & Atos already know the answer to this question, else why would they invite this poor lady in every year so they can measure her stumps just in case they do show signs if growth.

    They truly are heartless bastards.

What are you thinking?
