1397/7/4 | 22:24
Every 10 minutes another person is added to the national waiting list for organ transplants in the United States. Every day 22 people on that list die waiting for an organ that they need.

These organs can then be used for future transplants into human beings, who may then also technically be part pig, a chimera. There are 2 ways to create a chimera: The first is to transplant organs from one species to another, however, the risk ...

1397/2/12 | 22:24

About the size of Scotland or Florida, the dead zone almost covers the entire Gulf of Oman, which borders Iran, Oman, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates. What is a dead zone?
