Hanging on to a Thread – or Bio Experimentation that does so much good!

We wonder always at stem cell research, but how much do we really know?

It has a tremendous power and we have seen the results of a girl whose eyes didn’t work properly because the cord which connects the signals coming from her eyes, didn’t quite connect with the visual cortex. Stem cells were injected and now she is getting the joy of vision.

Let’s step back a bit. Supposing you couldn’t see? Would you go the lengths of having an experimental surgery in a foreign country where there are fewer governmental rules about medical procedures, before they are allowed to be enacted?

People from the United States go to get expensive surgeries done in the country of India because the surgery and the return flight there doesn’t cost as much as the surgery alone would cost in this country.

We have some thinking to do…
