These are some pretty sexy looking conceptual illustrations for Infinite Harvest, a Colorado based organic farming venture. With ambitious plans that include vertical farming techniques and renewable energy sources, Denver design studio Legwork helped create a futuristic vision of sustainable agriculture.
Since Regenocyte began offering treatments in the Dominican Republic in February 2008, its doctors have performed 75 of what it calls myocardial cellular regeneration procedures, at a cost of $64,500 a pop — not a penny of which is covered by insurance. The process kicks off in Naples, Florida, with a blood draw; the blood is then immediately whisked by courier to the lab of Regenocyte’s affiliate, TheraVitae, in Tel Aviv, Israel, for centrifuging and culturing.
After a 5-day incubation period, which increases the stem cells’ numbers a thousandfold, a TheraVitae representative boards a flight with the stem cells in a temperature-controlled tissue container, and arrives in Santo Domingo on the morning of the procedure. Shuttling cells back and forth across six time zones and performing the procedure outside the United States allows the company to operate without interference from U.S. authorities. The FDA’s jurisdiction extends only to products manufactured within the United States; as it is, the only step of the process the company carries out on American soil is a needle stick to the arm.
