Shortage of organs could be solved by growing organs from stem cells. In fact, the traditional method involved in growing organs are complex as well as expensive. For solving this problem, a Canadian inventor and scientist, Andrew Pelling is making his attempts. His has come up with a solution of implanting human cells into apples with the help of his lab. The idea behind preparing human ears from apples is gaining popularity. Obviously, you don't expect a behaviour of rooting through bins from a successful scientist. He is a biohacker who breaks the convention into more than one ways. Recently, he published a paper with the explanation of how apples are useful to grow human body parts.
