Adult Stem Cells Now Treating 65 Human Ailments: Embryonic Stem Cells Treating Zero Human Ailments

This report by the Do No Harm Coalition is very heartening. Adult stem cell research is moving forward at an amazing pace, virtually ignored by most media, giving rise to suspicion that many reporters are advocates and that ASC cures are the “wrong” cures. Imagine if this number and variety of ailments were being treated with embryonic stem cells! The headlines would be deafening. I remain convinced that the moral and ethical debate against human cloning will be won when and if it becomes clear that a thriving regenerative medical sector can be developed without resorting to human cloning.
