Stem Cell Research

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Now many people are wondering what are stem cells and why Barack Obama has recently spend billions of dollars on its development. The answer is that stem cells are no ordinary cell but are cells that have to ability to literary make and organ or tissue on the body from bones all the way to a new human brain, Their properties are remarkable, however research into stems cells is still at its very early stages and many people are against it because it evolves extracting the cells form an embryo. Stem cells could be used in order to cure patients who are paralyzed or to even take a patient of the waiting list of a heart transplant. I am going to go for this argument, Stems cells can be used to cure a wide range of serious disease, stem cells are currently being used to cure cancer patients, however scientists are looking ...read more.

Middle

"Science has presented us with a hope called stem cell research, which may provide our scientists with answers that have so long been beyond our grasp. I just don't see how we can turn our backs on this -- there are just so many diseases that can be cured, or at least helped. We have lost so much time already, and I just really can't bear to lose any more."-- Former First Lady Nancy Reagan Stem cells are still in very early development and many people question its potential. However although it is in development many people have already benefitted from its effects, for example one patient was told by his doctors in America that his heart was very weak and it was only a matter of time before he dies, his heartbeat got as low as 20 beats per minute, so he decided to go to China and try out this miracle ...read more.

Conclusion

Many scientist at the start of the research doubted that the stem cells could work on everybody. However stems cells have been proven not to have any serious side effects if the treatment doesn't work and any fears of allergies caused of stem cells have been tossed due to a new study which proves that human can't have allergies to stem cell due to the fact that the body considers them as an important cell In conclusion I believe that stem cell research is an important discovery that could dramatically change our lifestyle and even life span. They could eliminate our fears of disease or even pre mature death, and it promises to reduce aging and even prolong our lives and if this research was understood completely than it will surely revolutionize medicine as we know it.
