Science has taken the next step. Womb transplants are now a thing.

It's still early days, so I wouldn't rush out to volunteer for the procedure, but at some point in the near future, transgender women will be able to have the full works done. Including the ability to give birth to children of their own, most likely through C-section at first.

We are definitely living in a time of change.

Science has reached the point where they can tell if you're going to develop cancer thirteen years before it happens. What? Yep, by measuring the length of peoples' telomeres, they can come up with a pretty good idea of who is going to end up developing the Big-C.

From what I understand, it's basically a case of shortened telomeres meaning that at some point--probably after you've been exposed to a carcinogen (the sun, artificial sweeteners, gamma rays)--your body does not have a good blueprint to fall back on and mistakes are made during cell division.

"Falcon punch!" You have cancer.

So wear some sunscreen, use real sugar or honey, and don't be the test subject for that Hulktastic experiment your friends have been talking about.
