Transcript of Stem Cell

Stem Cell Reasearch Stem cells are unspecialized cells that have the ability to develop into any certain specialized cell. Different from regular cells for two reasons; they can renew themselves during cell division and can change themselves into specialized cells Stem cells are found throughout the human body. Can be found in the bone marrow, blood, brain, skeletal muscle, fat, and even the skin. Can be used to treat many conditions and diseases such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease Downside to stem cell research: Most come from embryos which are killed in the process of retrieving the stem cells. Essentially killing a human for the sake of another life Don't have to get stem cells from embryos. Alternatives: fat tissues, umbilical cords and even bone marrow from adults. “The embryo is the size of the tip of George Washington’s nose on a quarter.” "'So what?' Size doesn’t equal value. Otherwise teenagers would be more valuable than toddlers, simply because they are bigger. Men are generally larger than women, but that doesn’t mean they deserve more rights. Killing human embryos for science is size discrimination, pure and simple." Josh Brahm
