Stem Cells to Treat Heart Attacks

I am glad to learn that there are some Phase 2 studies being done for stem cell therapies. After the great hype by stem cell research, it is time we see some useful applications. And this is from adult stem cells which makes most of the controversies about embryonic stem cells moot.

  1. This is great information; we need more people in this arena on Stem Cells. Wouldn’t it be great if you could release you own adult stem cells. I would like to introduce you to the World’s First Stem Cell Enhancer. It is proven by Science and Medical Teams in a Peer Review study.

    Adult stem Cells can become any organ, tissue, or muscle in the body. After taking 1 gram of StemEnhance your body releases 3 to 4 million adult stem cells, into the blood stream. This is the body’s natural way to renew, refresh, and rejuvenate itself anyway. We are unleashing a whole new system of the body that has always been there. This is an all natural botanical extract for everyone.

  2. I surely agree with you, stem cells are the life givers of human body and their use in the right way will lead to many new discoveries in medical sciences.
    The research should go on for the betterment of the world community as prevention and cure of many diseases lie in stem cell treatments.

  3. Hi Cathy Princeton,
    Welcome. I agree with you that stem cells has great promises in the modern treatment heart and other diseases.
