Did You Know?


Individuals with Cystic Fibrosis do not benefit from the transplantation of a single lobe of a lung. The right lung has three large lobes. And the left lobe has two. So donating a single lobe of a lung would do very little good for these kinds of patients. They wouldn't even benefit from a single lung transplant. Cystic Fibrosis that is treated with a lung transplantation involves resecting both affected lungs, and transplanting in a right and a left lung. It is imperative that these patients receive two lungs. See more »

One worth more than the others
14 September 2017 | by (Falconara Marittima, Italy) – See all my reviews

Another villain who likes to play God. He's ready to sacrifice one life to let another person fulfilling special commitments. A doctor (James Saba) performs surgeries involving organ donation and a trust fund middle aged man (Gregg Edelman) chooses the right person just regarding on the patient's life purpose (non profit issue such as stop-smoking program in Harlem and hardened cardboard school projects in war zone); he's even eager to donate his own organs. However the patients didn't have to change their purpose, otherwise their lives would be at stake.

Next time I suggest the perpetrator cover his neck with a scarf: if you had something to hide, you wouldn't overlook anything!
