Sergio Canavero claims he can make you immortal, but there?s a small catch. He first wants to chop off your head.

If that?s not a deal-breaker, you?ll be happy to hear that the Italian neurosurgeon has announced he will perform the world?s first human head transplant in China sometime in December. (He?s vague on details, possibly for security reasons.) He will remove the head of a patient?an unidentified Chinese national?and attach it to a donor body, origin (and cause of death) unknown. The spinal cord will be fused and the blood vessels and muscles attached. The patient?same head, new body?will be kept in a coma for around a month while he (or she?) heals. Canavero says that if successful, his patient will eventually be able to walk again.
