Dr Hilary's take on pioneering new surgery

Dr Hilary is back with his weekly dose of the The Pulse, in which he gives us his insight into the week's health headlines.

First up, we have the amazing news that a man with a severed spinal cord was able to walk again, thanks to pioneering surgery.

Darek Figyka, 38, from Bulgaria can now walk again - after a knife attack left him paralysed from the waist down. His surgeons used nerve-supporting cells from Darek's nose to repair his severed spine. The treatment was developed by British scientists and it's hoped millions of disabled people world-wide could benefit from the treatment -as well as stroke victims.

Dr Hilary also tells us about the embryo 'super glue' which decreases chances of miscarriage, the newfound health benefits of eating beetroot and could too much artificial light lead to long-term health problems?
