Everyone Should ....

I read this story awhile ago in Readers Digest.  Here is a short synopsis: 

A 14 year old boy was shot in the heart with a nail gun. This caused a massive myocardial infarction, where part of the heart was severely injured. Doctor's believed he was in need of a transplant.  Doctor's injected stem cells into the damaged heart muscle.  The new cells took on characteristics of a heart muscle cell, and replaced the damaged heart.  The child is alive and well. 

 

I think that is amazing.  What a lot of people do not understand is stem cells will take on the characteristics of any type of cell.  That is whey stem cells are so important.

We need more stem cell research.  The possibilities are endless.

Oh mamaofj - what a great and inspirational story!!

I am living breathing proof that adult stem cells work! I had my own stem cells harvested (in Thailand/Israel) and injected into my heart. 3 years ago I was told I had 6 months to live, I am still alive and feeling better than ever. People even say I look better & younger than I did before I had a bad heart. If you are living with heart failure and would like adult stem cell information for improving your quality of life, giving you more energy and shrinking and strengthening your heart muscles, send me a message! :)

acgreenknight- not from what I've read. What study or website did you get that information from?

Wow acgreenknight - I didn't know that. <br />
