The Doctors: Baby Teeth Stem Cells
Your mom may have saved a few of your baby teeth for posterity, but now physicians like Dr. Nina Gray are saving those teeth for science. You can harvest stem cells from them, which could one day be useful in treating serious medical conditions.

The Doctors: Liquipel Waterproof Phone
Dropping your phone in the toilet is a nightmare, especially if you don’t have insurance on it. But now there are products that can help you safeguard your valuable electronics from water damage.
Dr. Jim Sears used this coating on his own cell phone, which was submerged in water and is still working fine. He explained that it has a coating 1,000 times thinner than a human hair, so it’s obviously invisible to the naked eye.
Liquipel coats the entire device, inside and out, to prevent water from penetrating any part of the phone. This will protect against spills or accidental drops in the sink or toilet.
To demonstrate how Liquipel works, Dr. Travis showed a tissue that was coated in Liquipel. He squirted water at the tissue, and it just bounced right off, without getting the tissue wet at all.
