Another success for ADULT stem cells

CNN.com reported today that 13 of 15 ADULTS with Type 1 diabetes (juvenile onset diabetes) who were treated with their own stem cells from their blood are now living without insulin treatments.

Adult stem cells "have provided hope for those suffering from spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, lupus, Crohn's disease, ocular degeneration, blindness, heart disease, leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, aplastic anemia, and sickle cell anemia.... While the potency and success of adult stem cell treatments are becoming evident, treatments using embryonic stem cells have not produced any clinical successes. Rather, embryonic stem cell treatments tend to create tumors in numerous animal studies." For more details, see "Adult Stem Cell Success" at http://www.cogforlife.org/adultStemCellSuccess.htm and then call your legislator to tell them to stop funding useless embryonic stem cell research.
