Quote of the day

"Adult stem cells, which include cord blood, placenta and other tissue stem cells, are actually helping patients right now. Thousands of patients have benefited, and lives (have been) saved, for over 70 different diseases and conditions, as verified by published scientific results. Yet most people haven't heard of adult stem cells, or don't know that they're different from embryonic stem cells. If we really cared about the patients first, we would focus on what works and what is ethical; the two go hand in hand. People need to hear and understand this message."
