The UK opens first embryotic stem cell bank

look here!

I really look forward to the things they find. I'm also curious as to what many of you think about this.

I really hope this blows medicine wide open, and with years of work maybe we'll finally be able to cure the uncurables! That will be awesome.

this is ours (yay!). well, a bit of it anyway....

Could (hopefully) sort out a lot of currently uncurable diseases. I'm hoping they sort out a lot of the ones to do with ageing (parkinsons, etc...) in the next 30 years.

Should be obvious why....

Sorry to say so, but that's bull****. Every half-competent highschool firstyear knows that adult stem cells are not half as potent as embryonic ones. I don't know what Bible Belt College rigged the results he's referring to (if they even exist), but I suppose that it shouldn't be surprising that a priest has a lax relationship with the truth. And he's supposed to champion moral standards. Disgusting.

Cool it, dude. He does raise a valid point and doesn't deserve to get bashed because of his profession for this. -C'
