Replacement Jaw Grown in Man’s Back

From CNN:

A German who had his lower jaw cut out because of cancer has enjoyed his first meal in nine years — a bratwurst sandwich — after surgeons grew a new jaw bone in his back muscle and transplanted it to his mouth in what experts call an “ambitious” experiment.

The guy lost a jaw and half his tongue to cancer, didn’t eat a solid meal for nine years, had a new jaw grown in his own back, and can now eat steak! But he complains to his doctor that since he has no teeth, he has to cut the steak into such tiny pieces that it gets cold before he’s finished. Now that’s what I call grateful!
