Breakthrough Work Converts Stem Cells into Lung Tissue
I've got pretty severe asthma, and over the years it's resulted in significant, permanent tissue damage. I live on the equivalent of less than one lung.
So if someone offered me an injection that promised to repair my damaged lung tissue, would I take it?
Well, DUH. Here's my arm, d00d. Gimme teh goodz!!
But what if the label stated that it was derived from embryonic stem cells?
Well, DUH. No way, d00d.
I didn't really have to think about it, somewhat to my surprise. I'm not willing to sacrifice a child to save my own life.
