In an amazing and bizarre feat of modern medicine, a woman has had one of her ovaries implanted in her arm.

The intention of the operation was to prevent infertility during cancer treatment.

About the Sun newspaper... (3.50 / 2) (#1)
by Weyland Yutani on Fri Sep 28, 2001 at 12:38:48 PM EST

...where this article is from.

It's a downmarket British tabloid newspaper. It's not at the same level as, say, the "Weekly World News", but it would be nice to see some confirmation from a, *ahem*, more scientifically reputable source.

The Sun is quite reliable. (4.00 / 2) (#6)
by Nick Ives on Fri Sep 28, 2001 at 03:46:56 PM EST

The Sun is, overall, a fairly reliable newspaper IMO. It has the habit of spinning political stories in favour of whatever party it happens to be supporting (que "It was us wot won it" from after the '93 election), but every British newspaper does that (even the Observer which has claims to neutrality but tends to favour parties with a liberal agenda). True, the majority of The Sun is banal trivia and most readers probably buy it because of page 3, but overall I reckon the majority of stuff printed in The Sun has some basis in fact.

You forgot to mention, it may be downmarket but its also our biggest circulated paper.

How about NPR? (4.50 / 2) (#8)
by lovelace on Fri Sep 28, 2001 at 10:57:25 PM EST

Well, here's the NPR story about it. I heard this on the air last wednesday and while I realize that it's an incredible thing for women with cancer that want to have children, it just sort of gives me the willies thinking about it.

I'd be careful, shaking hands with this woman.

But Dr. Drew told me that receiving a hand job couldn't get a girl pregnant.

(Disclaimer: Yeah, I know this joke is lame, but I've gotten bored of trusted user status. Also, it raises the discussion topic of using ovary, or testicle, arm for birth control.)

At the university of connecticut, we have sheep with ovarys in their necks, as to ease drawing blood.
