Bioengineering breakthrough

This story from Research SEA seems to me to describe an incredible scientific and technological achievement but sadly one that has received relatively little attention:

“Japanese scientists have grown teeth in mice. This research is expected to advance the development of “tooth regenerative therapy” which have the potential for replacing diseased or damaged teeth with bioengineered teeth. The research is expected to evolve into a wide variety of organ regenerative technologies for liver, kidneys and other organs.”

The media seems to focus largely on trivia and panic stories while failing to see the potential of human achievements.
