Adult Stem Cells Show Promise for Healing Broken Bones

CitizenLink is reporting that researchers at the University of North Carolina have used adult stem cells to improve the healing of broken bones in mice.

Dawn Vargo, bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family Action, said: “Although this particular treatment is still being tested in mice, it might soon be added to the long list of adult stem-cell treatments successfully used in people suffering from debilitating.”

My Take?

This is just another in an ever lengthening list of diseases that are or will be treated with adult, placental, or umbilical stem cells. And the list grows and grows.

In the meantime, embryonic stem cell research, which requires the destruction (murder) of unborn children (in the embryonic stage), has not helped a single human anywhere.

There’s simply no reason to continue to pour good money after bad – and then reduce the experimental money available for life-saving adult stem cell research.
