Stem Cell Research

I am excited to report that my op-ed piece on stem cell research was printed recently in the Deseret News. Click on the headling "Stem Cell Research" to be directed to the page. In a nutshell, embryonic stem cell research holds the key to the potential cure for diabetes and a myriad of other diseases as well. The future of stem cell research is promising. Hopefully, it will bring about the cure for Parkinsons, cancer, and type I diabetes and well as help in the creation of organs for those waiting for transplants. And likely many other currently known and unknown benefits. I hope you will read the article and sympathize with my position. Stem cell research is an important step in the progress of medical treatments.
