Time consuming and mis-matchy blood transfusions may be a thing of the past as scientists at McMaster University have discovered how to make human blood from skin. That's right folks, the potential to personally make your own blood from the very skin on your bones is just around the corner.

The procedure to make human blood from skin involves taking a tiny extract of skin, extract fibroblasts, then add proteins of DNA within a petri dish to complete the process. Researchers predict this lab-grown blood could be ready for testing within a span of two years.
