Stem Cells

What a great video. Dr. Oz tells Michael J. Fox and Oprah that the "stem cell debate is dead" and that the cures they have hoped for will come from pluripotent stem cells NOT from embryonic stem cells. Of course, nobody will give credit to the Catholic Church for standing up and fighting against embryonic stem cell research, but we (at least) helped to delay the research enough to have pluripotent stem cell research come to the forefront of the debate and make the debate moot. Politics is a bigger issue than science when it comes to embryonic stem cells anyway.
If you need to know more read this - stem cells for dummies.

Tip o' the hat to AmP.

There is a group of physicians, patients and other interested people working together to get treatment with adult stem cells legalized in the U.S. as it should be. Please ask your family and friends to sign up ("JOIN"), and get as many doctors to sign up as well. Please see The American Stem Cell Therapy Association site
