Stem cells can also be obtained from sources like the umbilical cord of a newborn baby. This is an accessible source of stem cells, compared to adult tissues like the brain and bone marrow. Although scientists can grow these cells in culture dishes, they can do so only for a limited time. Recently, scientists have discovered the existence of stem cells in baby teeth and in amniotic fluid-the "water bath" that surrounds an unborn baby- and these cells may also have the potential to form multiple cell types. Research to characterize and study these cells is very promising but at a very early stage.
I for one say, right on. Profit or no profit, stem cell research is a most promising future for the prevention of disease.
