Full head transplant - level 2

Full head transplant - level 2

28-04-2015 15:00

A Russian computer scientist suffers from a rare disease which causes severe muscle weakness. His condition is getting worse and worse and he must get help. Otherwise, he will die.

The man plans to have the surgery – a full head transplant. During the operation, doctors will place his head on somebody else’s body. The operation would cost around $10 million pounds, and it would take place in either China or the US.

The man knows that this is very dangerous – he knows that he may not survive the operation. However, he wants to take the risk. Even if he dies, he can still push forward medical science.

Difficult words: severe (very strong), weakness (being weak – not strong), push forward (help by providing information).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
