Adult Stem Cells Cure Diabetes

Published by at 10:57 pm under All General Discussions,Stem Cell Debate

In the never ending avalanche of successes coming from Adult Stem Cell Research, in light of all the dismal failures of Embryonic Stem Cell Research, we find adult stem cells harvested not from dead human beings but from needy patients are now curing diabetes:

In a breakthrough trial, 15 young patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes were given drugs to suppress their immune systems followed by transfusions of stem cells drawn from their own blood.

The results show that insulin-dependent diabetics can be freed from reliance on needles by an injection of their own stem cells. The therapy could signal a revolution in the treatment of the condition, which affects more than 300,000 Britons.

You will never see all the successes from Adult Stem Cells in the US media – they are agenda driven. They have no interest in what is best for America – they need to defeat George Bush and damn the consequences. Embryonic Stem Cell Research has killed hundred if not thousands of human beings and produced nothing in terms of treatments and cures. Adult Stem Cell research has not killed a single person, yet something like 90+ treatments are in clinical trials. Only desperate snake oil salesmen still push dead embryos as the miracle cure.

    In this one all you have to do is follow the money to see what it buys.

  2. Adult Stem Cells Found to Help Diabetes Patients…

    A group of Brazilian and American doctors found by injecting type I diabetes patients with their own stem cells they could be weened off insulin injections:
    Diabetics using stem-cell therapy have been able to stop taking insulin injections for the firs…

    If you read this article, you will notice that the journalist makes a gratuitous swipe at efforts to ban embryo harvesting for stem cells, and does not emphasize anywhere that this is an adult stem cell cure. Nor is there any discussion of the fact that all successful stem cell cures are from adult sources. But no bias here, just pure scientific reporting.

    The dims have jumped on the embryo stem cell research bandwagon. This issue is joined fast to abortion. In their eyes anything that endangers one endangers the other and as we all know abortion is the key to their platform. They cannot let ESCR go. They have to hype it for their own plausibility and anything that discredits it is trashed or ignored.
