What Is the Controversy?

Recently I have been hearing and seeing the term "stem cell research" quite a bit. I also see the word "controversial" printed next to it often as well. I decided that I wanted to find out more about what the benefits were from this research. From what I have read, I do not see the reason for the controversy other than the fact that it is a new and innovative concept.

C'elle explains about the science quite plainly on their website. If I understand it correctly, there are rapidly reproducing stem cells in the uterine lining and these cells can be harvested from a woman's menstrual blood. The blood is collected with a kit and then sent off to a lab where the stem cells are harvested and preserved for their owner. It is recommended that harvesting begins early on because the quantity produced of these beneficial stem cells decreases as we get older.

The next question is how the harvested stem cells can benefit you in the future? As I understand it, regenerative therapies can be created from the harvested stem cells. They may be effective in treating some very serious things such as heart disease, strokes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and diabetes. Something else I have read, that really is important to me as a mother, is that the harvested stem cells could potentially be used to treat family members.

The best analogy I can think of regarding the harvesting of stem cells is that it is like investing in a 401K. It has some risk because you cannot be sure what the results of the research will be, but if it goes the way everyone hopes, it could really pay off big down the road. It was very interesting to watch this C'elle client testimonial and to listen to the reasons why she decided to invest in harvesting her stem cells. I invite you to watch it and come back here to tell me what you think about this science.
