Uh, no. imho.
What if the finite substance of oil ... was actually finite? We'd find another way to make knee parts, computers, hearing aids, etc.  I believe in innovation. We hoomans have, over millennia, managed to have gotten pretty good at it. Miamizsun could probably weigh in on this better than I. But the all or nothing, purity bit is a big part of our problem solving ability.
The key here is nothing will be a panacea, while everything can be a possibility. 

Personally, I'd like to hold out for the Hemp Hip replacement model, with time release CBD oil.

Well, best of luck Kurt.  Please report back.


EDIT:    Every time, I feel my knees after 4 hours of up and down hiking, I wonder if one day that will be me replacing the knees.....

Well I had it done yesterday, so I'll need a few more days to figure that one out.
I heard from many people that have had it done. Their answers were always positive.

Same from me!

The xray of everything they put in me.
Femur at the top. Tibia at the bottom...




A stock photo of the Zimmer "Persona" knee. One of the best on the market.

That includes the one that drove into my driveway taking out my 3 cars. {#Eek}

It will drive itself when you use the radar cruise control. Not that I plan to use that, but still I did take it out on the highway and tried it out.

Great looking car! Drive it with enjoyment and RP on the car App. 

The only thing I hate about this next gen auto's are the full grill from top to bottom. There's no bumpers to stop you from wrecking your grill and a $1000 replacement job
