After losing her left ear in a 2016 car crash, Army Pvt. Shamika Burrage knew she wanted a "real" replacement ear and not some prosthetic knockoff.

So what did she do? Grow the ear herself… with a little help from Army doctors!

According to an Army statement, doctors were able to grow an ear under the soldier's forearm and successfully transplant it onto her head. Science!

The ear was then placed under the skin of her forearm, where it was allowed to grow. Plastic surgeons

No More Chocolate! Scientists Warn Climate Change Is Putting Cacao Plants At Risk!

| Filed under: FoodEnvironmentScience!Viral: News

Thanks to climate change, even chocolate is no longer safe!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted in a 2016 report that based on climate change factors, cacao is going to be facing a real crisis in the next four decades!

See, chocolate can only be grown within 10 degrees of the equator because of specific temperature requirements. In fact, half the world's chocolate is produced by just two countries: Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana.

By 2050, those countries are looking at a 3.8˚F temperature increase, without the accompanying increase in rainfall of warmer countries! Not good for chocolate!

Thankfully, the Mars company is working hard on helping cacao adapt to the changes with the latest advances, including a new tech called CRISPR, which allows for very small changes to DNA. Whew!

While cacao is not exactly on the edge of extinction, difficulty in cultivation could obviously lead to increased prices in EVERYTHING with chocolate in it.

Something to think about the next time you think about your carbon footprint.
