Adult stem cells are much farther ahead in research and clinical applications than embryonic stem cells, an AP writer reports. While embryonic stem cells have been the darling of the media for years and adult stem cells have been the red headed stepchild, this major press coverage is a great advance in notifying the public of this discrepancy. The bottom line, adult stem cells are being used in early clinical and research work to heal cartilage, bones, multiple sclerosis, heart attacks, diabetes, and other diseases. This begs the obvious question, do we need embryonic stem cells?
