To be able to use your own stem cells to cure your own disease! Now that’s what I’m talking about. No ethical dilemmas. No making nascent life to destroy it. No abusing somebody else’s body to help me. No rejection issues as it is your OWN stem cells! Look at this. A Utah hospital is beginning to treat open heart patients with their own stem cells from their own bone marrow. Stem cells are helpful only for REGENERATIVE medical conditions. So whenever you read that stem cells help Alzheimers, NOT! Alzheimers disease is a whole brain disease, not a degenerative disease. So here are patients with heart damage being treated with their own stem cells to regenerate their own damaged heart muscles. Now that is pro-human!
