How would you like to live in a world where anyone could be brought back by cloning their teeth? That is one crazy Canadian dentist’s dream.
The Huffington Post is reporting that is exactly the dream of Dr. Michael Zuk. Zuk wants to bring back Beatles’ legend John Lennon by takening DNA from a leftover moral and cloning him.
Zuk bought the tooth at auction back in 2011 for $31,000, and Zuk plans on trying to use it to clone the Rockstar.
“I had a bigger picture even then,” Zuk told HuffPost of his plan to extract DNA after purchasing the tooth. “I knew it was a bit of a long shot, but still not terribly unlikely that a person could get some genetic material from the tooth.”
Adding, “bring someone back from history … would be the ultimate expression of science.”
