New Organs (Heart, Bladder, etc) Today

I wanted to get this awareness out that today, yes, today medical hospitals are injecting a patient's own grown stem cells into their heart and growing new heart tissue. In every case, patients are regaining heart function and new blood circulation up to 40%. This is happening today.

Heart repair with stem cells 'biggest breakthrough in a generation' - Telegraph


Also, hospitals are growing patient's own bladder with their own stem cells. Dozens have been replaced. This is happening today.

There is a lot more going on like nerve binding with stem cells. Ear replacement with stem cells.

Get your new heart today

Thanks for sharing.

The only stem cell research controversy I am aware of regards the use of fetal stem cells. IIRC, research on stem cells from adults has not been an issue.

They put out a rather interesting news flyer back when the controversy first started covering the stance pretty well and also pointing out that the use of Adult cells was far more productive and achieving far greater goals than those of the infants.

It wasn't even about the use of fetal stem cells, it was about federal funding of fetal stem cell research using cells that weren't from "approved" (existing?) lines...

Before the "Gun advocate - Gun non-advocate" posturing begins, here is a short article from the Maya Clinic.

I'm going to go read that now, but my understanding of stem cells is they are fetal cells that can grow to become any other type of cell, depending on stimulie....
I didn't think adults have them?

I just figure that if the Higher Power did not want stem cells to be used He would not have let the scientist develop them.

We have come a long, long way in medicine. Now I just wish they could find a cure for all cancers.

Scientists didn't develop stem cells, they are harvesting already existing ones from the human body.

Sorry for "Fat Fingering" the name. I know it is the Mayo Clinic.

I really do not understand the stem cell research and definitely don't pretend to understand.

I know there is a lot of controversy regarding the research, as can already be seen in this thread.

Think of what medicine was 100 years ago. What will it be a 100 years from now?

Realy! Wow! I didn't know that. (NOT)

In the future I will try and state my information in a clear, non-confusing way.

Thanks for the clarification.
