My eyes have started to water. My knees are firmly locked together. I have just read an article in today's Telegraph about how men's testicles are going to be used to help fight diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It seems that a team of scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York believes that cells taken from these most precious of man's possessions could be used in place of more controversial embryonic stem cells. I would have thought that this new idea would itself be fairly controversial - especially for the prospective donors.
This team of scientists do seem to have something of a testicles obsession - and have already used rat's testicles to grow beating heart cells. This combination of removal and implantation has made me think about whether these experiments have already been used. Ask yourself this dear readers. Are there any groups in our society that lack the b***s to take tough decisions, and have rat-like loyalty in their hearts? I speak to you as a politician.
