Stem cells research is still looked at in an intriguing manner. Many claim that patients treated with them are susceptible to cancer. However, researchers have not stumbled upon this problem so far, and this miraculous cell continues to treat different irreversible health problems in humans.
What are stem cells? They are found at the base of each living organism. These cells contain the recipe to replicate themselves in complicated structures, which are the organs and the entire body. Stem cells have the biological code to grow bones, organs, skin and cells. They exist in two states in the mammals in our world: in embryonic phase, found in the umbilical cord of the newborns, and in adult stage, found in the bodies of the adults. The embryonic cells are in charge or growing all the genetic material needed for the body. It has to build blood vessels, circuits, organs, bones and skin. The mature cells are in charge of healing the adult body in care of injury or disease.
Scientists have attracted the attention of the public on the many uses stem cells can have. The most therapeutic cloning application is in the case of leukemia. Bone marrow is transplanted to help replace the injured ones. Researchers believe that with the introduction of stem cells in the non functional organs of the body, they can push the body to auto heal. A great number of parents choose to preserve stem cells in banks, to have a backup for the health system of their children, because the belief in the therapeutic cloning process gained more terrain in the last years. Research teams reveal that patients suffering from Alzheimer can be treated with these cells. Also, the malfunction of the blood vessels around the human hearts and the organ itself, that usually happens during a stroke, can be repaired with the help of stem cells.
