What are dissolvable stitches made of? The surprising answer coming up next on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Some animals – like insects, lobsters and crabs – generate a natural plastic for their shells called chitin. The crab meat industry was throwing away thousands of tons of chitin each year because scientists couldn’t figure out how to extract chitin from the shells in a usable form.
Finally in 1975 scientists discovered how to change chitin into such things as suture thread. Not only do these stitches dissolve in the body, they cause no allergic reaction, and they even seem to promote healing!
Almost everything in the creation seems to have numerous uses for human needs. This is testimony that the Creator has made this universe for us and that He cares about our needs. In the Bible we learn that He has provided for our greatest need through His Son, Jesus Christ.
