Transcript of Stem Cell Research

By: Brooke & Sadun Should Stem Cell Research be Allowed in the US? What are Stem Cells? Adult Stem Cells Location of Issue Stem cells are a type of cell found in the body which has the ability to turn into all the 220 different cells in the human body. There are two types of stem cells: Adult Stem cells and embryonic Stem Cells. Stem cells can be the greatest cure for human suffering! Embryonic Stem Cells VS Adult Stem Cells Embryonic Stem Cells Adult Stem Cells Potential Cures Using Stem Cells What are Embryonic Stem Cells?
Embryonic stem cells are a type of stem cells which are taken from four to five day old embryos. They can develop into each and every 220 different types of cells in the human body. Doctors and medical researchers are excited about these stem cells, because they have potential to cure many different diseases.
However taking these cells from embryos cause the embryos to get destroyed. Studying embryonic stem cells may advance our knowledge on early fetal development and clarify how some serious conditions like birth defects and cancer develop. These stem cells can potentially be used to make therapy for many diseases, such as Diabetes, spinal cord injury, several types of cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease Both Sadun and I believe that “the advantages from stem cell research outweighs the destruction of an embryo. Since embryos that are 4-5 days old have not developed a brains, a pain receptors or a central nervous system. Stem cells have a lot of potential and if abortion is allowed then so should stem cell research and embryonic stem cell research. can become any type of cell in the body Adult stem cells are cells found in every human body, including children. Just like embryonic stem cells, these cells can be used to repair human organs and tissue.
They can be found in many places in the body. They can be found in bone marrow, fat cells, umbilical cord blood, adult blood, skin cells, brain cells, blood vessels, skeletal muscles, teeth, heart, liver and stomach. They can only develop into some of the types of cells in the human body. - Can develop into each and every 220 different types of cells in the human body. - Could develop many med-ical advances, embryonic stem cell research advances our knowledge on the early fetal development. - It causes embryos to get destroyed being unethical. - Can only develop into some of the cells in the human body. -Are not as useful when compaired to Embryonic stem cells. -Does not require the death of a embryo, can be found in varies places in the human body Boston Massachusetts Stake Holders Personal opinions Solution - Most scientists are certain that “the benefits from stem cell research outweighs the cons such as destroying embryonic life - Support adult stem cell research. Scientific Community Doctors Patients/General Public - Have no specific position on stem cell research due to the many different personal opinons of the citizens. Religious Groups and Activists - Their controversy on embryonic stem cells and its use are connected to religious and ethical opinions regarding abortion and the time human life starts. Politicians
Politicians don’t have a specific noticeable position on stem cell research because they have to pass rules and regulation that keeps their voters satisfied. However, their decisions have a huge impact on stem cell research. Stem cells can be the greatest cure for human suffering! The pros in stem cells outweigh the cons Bibliography Pluripotent: Induced: Bring about or give rise to A New medical discovery could be the answer to this issue. Scientists have discovered a way to make a patient's very own cells perform like embryonic stem cells. They call it Induced pluripotent stem cells and it’s dropping the need of human embryo research. It is opening doors to many new possibilities of stem cell treatments and therapies without the need of destroying an embryo. Works Cited:
