Humans may grow beaks one day, says bio scientist

One of these days, science tells us, people won’t need teeth, they’ll grow pufferfish-like beaks instead. At least that’s what a biologist at Sheffield University believes.

He conceded that it might ‘take a while’ though. Science fiction belongs in the far future.
