Stem Cell Breakthrough

Not that this completely ends the debate on stem cell research, but it does put my mind at ease to know that there is absolutely no need to use (and kill) human embryos in order to do stem cell research. The technology now exists to turn any human cell into a stem cell. And not just one group has managed this: researchers from Kyoto University and the University of Wisconsin have both figured it out. Let's hope this new development will end up being much more efficient and useful to scientists, so that it will ultimately be the preferred method.
