Stem Cell Research

Stem cell research is the new technology that develops human cells into a variety of cells hundreds of cells of the human body like brain and blood cells. Scientist and researchers are attempting to use stem cells to serve as a treatment and cure for diseases. Adult stem cells are generated from adult tissue with no major complications. Embryo stem cells are generated easier and are projected to serve more purpose than adult stem cells

Stem cell research is a great thing for medicine and society. This stem cell research good revolutionize the treatment for diseases. Patients will have a better survival rate if their bad cells can be regenerated with stem cells. Cancer and fatal disease like Aids can potentially be cured by this major research. It may take a while but it is definitely worth putting a lot of time, effort, and millions of dollars toward helping stem cell research become current medical procedures. This could minimize the cost of surgeries for cancers and diseases also.

Some people disagree with the ethics of stem cell research because it is the process of cloning. From a religious aspect, people don’t want mankind to act as God by attempting to create new life. It has been argued that stem cell research is the beginning of major cloning which will be the creating human beings without sexual reproduction. I totally agree that cloning human beings is ill moral and detrimental to society.
