Stem-Cells Work

News not reported widely:

The pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has announced that it is funding a new adult stem-cell treatment that could treat diabetes-induced retinal damage, a leading cause of blindness.....

In animal experiments, adult stem-cells have shown a remarkable ability to target and repair damaged blood vessels in the eye, which are a key problem in diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration.

No babies were killed in this process.

No babies were killed in this process.

Therefore, the usual suspects will decry it as ineffective or otherwise not preferable to the SCR that does kill babies.

And, ESCR still has no results that have made it to human trial phase.

But, it has "promise"!

Not one single human being has been treated with embryonic stem cells. The reason? They are uncontrollable and have caused tumors and other problems when tested on animals.

On the other hand, over 72 diseases and conditions are already being helped with adult stem cells.
