Stem Cell Research Pros

Stem cell research pros has shown us that stem cells are special cells which, when given specialized signal, can become any part of the body needed for regeneration.  The body may need muscle cells, blood cells, skin cells, organ cells, nervous system cells, etc.  The stem cells will go in and sweep up the cells that are dead or have been damaged.  These new cells take their place and help to regenerate the body.

Stem cell research pros have shown us that there are two sources of stem cells in which to consider for treatment.  Embryonic stem cells and fetal stem cells create a blueprint for making a body from scratch.  Adult stem cells hold the plans for healing an organ or body system that has become damaged or injured.  These cells do not contain the original building blueprint.

The benefits of stem cells, shown to us through the stem cell research pros, include curing the incurable diseases.  We finally have a plausible treatment for many types of cancers and diseases like diabetes and heart disease.  The stem cell research pros also show that age related diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease is improved with stem cell therapies.  An area where stem cells are really making break-through successes is with autism.  Autism delays the development of children and usually manifest with behavioral disorders and food allergies.  Stem cell therapies can be used on very young children and very elderly people with great success.  Depending on the therapy chosen, the procedures can carry little to no risk during or after treatment.

Finger tips have been regrown with stem cell therapy and 3rd degree burns are being treated with topical and oral use of stem cells.

The stem cell research pros have shown us that stem cell treatment comes in many forms.  The most familiar type of stem cell therapy is stem cells administered through an injection process.  Stem cells may be injected directly into a diseased organ or into muscle or placed just under the skin.  Stem cells have been freeze dried and powdered for wound application.  There are also stem cell sprays and serums for topical application and anti-aging treatments.  Oral use of stem cells is beginning to build in popularity.  Imagine being able to take your stem cells like you would a supplement!  Oral stem cell therapies range from using animal stem cells to using your own adult stem cells.  Either way, the research for oral stem cells is proving to be promising.

These are just a few instances of stem cell research pros with many more instances that could be cited.
