Stem cell research and cancer

Cancer stem cells are similar to adult stem cells in their abilities to self-renew and differentiate into multiple cell types and they persist in tumors as a distinct population, which causes disease relapse and metastasis. They are also capable to give rise to new tumors.

In this video Dr. Mike Magee, a Senior Fellow in the Humanities to the World Medical Association and the host of Health Politics with Dr. Mike Magee, a weekly, Internet-based electronic media program that explores complex issues of health care policy and public health for consumers, policy makers, educators and the news media, talks about cancer stem cells and how stem cell research can eventually find a cure to cancer.

Stem cell therapy is already being used in foreign countries in the treatment and cure of cancer.

While here in the US people bicker about ethics the work goes on elsewhere. If you want stem cell therapy go to New Zealand, Mexico, Europe. With stem cell therapy and ozone therapy, often, but not always combined with chemo, cancer cure rates are much higher than here in the USA.

visit my blog to lean about Ozone Therapy and why you should consider using it for cancer and other chronic diseases.
