    They're printing it on plastic though. Why didn't they try it on people?

    It's kinda new so I imagine they will try it on mice first. Maybe Trump will volunteer......

    I'm guessing they use the persons own skin cells and clone them so there would be no rejection/cancer problems.

    Can cancer be caused by someone else's cells?

    Not so much cancer but for sure transplant rejection. Unless you get antirejection meds which you have to be on forever. Your own cells bypass that problem.
