Adults stem cells restore sight to blind eye

Scientists restore eye sight by stem cell treatment

The stem cells were taken from the patient's other, undamaged, eye.

I still don't understand why right-to-lifers squeal so gleefully about ASCR successes. Sure they're nice, but they're not a reason to abandon ESCR. We need ESCR for BASIC SCIENCE reasons. To UNDERSTAND the process by which the cells detect their surroundings and specialize accordingly. To learn HOW ESCs and ASCs differ.

The people who discovered the element silicon were not thinking about making computers.

We're delighted to see real treatments that really work. We're not thrilled when Dr. Mengele types get it into their heads that it's okay to kill human beings for medical experiments. Seems pretty simple to me.

Well then, you should also be posting about new radiological treatments, new drugs, new surgical techniques.

Why don't ESCR proponents pay attention to treatments that work instead of focusing their effort on producing tremors, tumors, and dead lab rats?

And why don't you start your own blog? You're so fond of telling me what I supposedly ought to be posting.

Christina, as I said, the immediate treatments are pretty much just public relations; the real motivator for ESCR is basic science.

And I do have my own blog! Right here: http://operationcounterstrike.blogspot.com

But that doesn't stop me from making helpful suggestions of ways for you to improve yours. You're welcome!

I found out about OC's blog. I looked at it. That's why I no longer want to talk to him unless he retracts his violent statements against pro-lifers.

Is OC a him or her? I'm not quite sure.
