Fantastic Science

By GotDesign
Those of you who have been reading me for a while will know that I am vehemently opposed to embryonic stem cell research (if not, please read this). But I am a great supporter of the use of adult stem cells in medical research and treatment. To that end, there has been a major scientific breakthrough in, of all places, Louisville, KY.

Researchers at the University of Louisville James Graham Brown Cancer Center have been able to coax adult stem cells in mice to change into other cell types throughout the body. This is fabulous because it would obviate the need to the morally bankrupt use of embryonic stem cells. Dr. Mariusz Ratajczak had the following to say:
We have found a counterpart for embryonic stem cells in adult bone marrow. This could negate the ethical concerns.
For years, scientists have been making groundbreaking advances in medical science using adult stem cells. At the same time scientists have always held that adult stems cells have the most potential for future medical breakthroughs -- not embryonic stem cells. As soon as the stem cell research team at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center can replicate this success with human adult stem cells, there will be no reason to pursue embryonic stem cells other than to further the agenda of pro-abortion crowd.

This is fabulous news. I would encourage you to support the research of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center and similar ventures seeking solutions through adult stem cells. Support life.
