Meet the Anarchists Making Their Own Medicine:

"With a shaved head, dark beard, and an ever-present camo jacket, Laufer doesnít look
like the type of person youíd seek out for medical adviceóbut thatís exactly his point. As
the founding member of Four Thieves Vinegar, a volunteer network of anarchists and
hackers developing DIY medical technologies, Laufer has spent the last decade working
to liberate life-saving pharmaceuticals from the massive corporations that own them.
Laufer has no formal training in medicine and heíll be the first to tell you heís not a
doctor. In fact, from a regulatory standpoint heís more qualified to do mathematical
work on nuclear weapons than treat patients. But Lauferís never really been the type to
let rules and regulations stand in his way."

In 5 years Lab Grown organs could start helping
115,000 in the US waiting for organs:

"Bioengineered lungs have been grown in a Texas lab and transplanted into adult pigs
with no medical complication. This could begin solving the human transplant problem
starting in about 5 years. They could grow lungs to transplant into people in
compassionate use circumstances within five to 10 years."
