Abstract: A quick proof of Bing's theorem indicated by the title is given. Indeed the inverse limit of a sequence of degree $ >1$ maps between closed oriented $ m$-manifolds can never be embedded into any closed orientable $ (m+1)$-manifold. The proof also concludes Gumerov's result on the covering of solenoids.
