The headline reads “Stem cells heal heart attack scars, regrow healthy muscle” splashed across the page at CBS News ‘health pop’ page. Immediately, most liberal minds tell us (and themselves) “Aha! See, stem cells really do cure. Support stem cell research!”
In earlier times they would have said “Support fetal stem cell research!” or “Support embryonic stem cell research!”
The problem is that with all the money that the government has spent on embryonic stem cell research, there has not been a single cure for developed – not one! The only thing gained with embryonic stem cell research, is that scientific egos get stroked by playing that they are a god. Oh yes, they have destroyed life; that’s another accomplishment.
Down further in the article they say “The other 17 patients received stem cells, which researchers derived from raisin-sized pieces of patients’ own heart tissue.” These stem cells are adult stem cells.
Thousands of cures have been developed from adult stem cells and not a single one from embryonic stem cells. I think it is time for the government to stop wasting our tax dollars on a futile hoax as embryonic stem cell research.
Why should the government invest in this when every company has put their research money into adult stem cell research? If someone with a severed spinal column, like Christopher Reed, walks again, it will be from adult stem cell research.
That headline should have read “Adult stem cells heal heart attack scars, regrow healthy muscle.”
