Adult Stem Cells Cure Paraplegic
edit_button

It's true. Adult stem cells have cured a paraplegic after living in this condition for 19 years. These cells are supported by the Church because they came from umbilical cord cells that didn't result in any death unlike embryonic stem cells.

This is happy news, indeed--best wishes to the cured paraplegic.

More research and facts on adult stem cell prospects can be found here: http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-smith042302.asp

I was particularly compelled by the closing statement:

"The media continue to imply that embryos hold the key to the future. But increasingly, it looks as if our own body cells offer the quickest and best hope for regenerative medicine. The time has come for the public to insist that the media stop acting as if adult stem cells are the "wrong" kind of stem cells, and report to the American people fully and fairly the remarkable advances continually being made in adult regenerative medicine."
