Now I know everyone has their opinions on stemcell research... but thought this was interesting.
By Neal Broverman
Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, made a stunning announcement Monday: Stem cells can be engineered to kill HIV.
The results, published Monday in the online journal PLoS ONE, demonstrate that human stem cells can be engineered into the equivalent of a genetic vaccine.
That's great. What is not often known is that you do not have KILL to get stem cells. The same cells can come from cord blood and amnio fluid after the baby is born.

I support stem cell research 100%, BUT..... I wonder how many cures will actually come of this? Stem cells seems to be miraculous in there ability to cure everything, but I think once research is actually completed, stem cells won't be as effective as they publicize. Researchers NEED to emphasize possible cures in order to get funding. What happens to a bunch of cells in a lab and what ACTUALLY happens in humans are two different things.
