    Should the Federal Government Fund the Research of Embryonic Stem Cells Every day, people are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases like Alzheimer 's, Parkinson 's, and cancer, their cells are literally fighting against themselves. One way this can be corrected is with the use of stem cells. Stem cells are an undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that is capable of developing into an indefinite amount of cells of the same type. There are two prominent types of stem cells, embryonic and adult stem cells. Adult stem cells are found in adults, children, babies, placentas, cadavers, and umbilical cords and can be extracted without any harm to the individual. But, the uses are far more limited compared to embryonic stem cells.…

    Stem Cell Research Paper: Human Embryonic Stem Cells or (hESCs) Human Embryonic Stem Cells or (hESCs) are taken from human embryos, however these embryos are not normal ones. The (hESC) are embryos that were fertilized in a process known as in vitro fertilization. In vitro fertilization is usually done in a clinic of some sort and are then given to researchers for research with permission from the people who have donated. The human embryonic stem cells are not created from a woman, they are…

    Stem cells are the ones that divide and give rise to more identical cells. The identical cells developed will have the capacity to divide and give rise to different cells or even more similar stem cells. Stem cells are two types one of them are embryonic stem cells and the other are adult stem cells. In February 1963 the scientists named Ernesr McCulloch and James did experiments on bone marrow of mice and discovered that there is production of different kinds of blood cells from a single group…

    cancer, stem cells may help repair the damage or cure the disease. For instance, a leukemia patient can undergo a stem cell transplant and be cured of cancer. Stem cell research has made several advances in the medical field. It has helped and even cured many people with serious diseases and illnesses. Even though stem cell research has benefited many people, it has also been associated with negative controversy. Stem cell research has a long history of controversy. Stem cells have been…

    Despite the incredible diversity of cells that exist on our planet, they all have a common origin. Whether a red blood cell, muscle, or brain cell, all begin as a stem cell. These stem cells have become both a source of great potential for medical advancement as well as a hotbed of controversy. (Health, Stem Cell Basics, 2016) There are two different types of stem cells, embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Although embryonic stem cells are the ones most commonly heard about, both have…

    Stem cells are cells in all organisms that undergo a process called differentiation which is the process of growth or development to becoming something different. Stem cells work together to later become of use in areas of need such as tissue, muscle, or organs. Unlike stem cells, which have gone through one stage of differentiation, embryonic stem cells (ESC) can easily provide more of a variety on what they can become and be used for later in life. Consequently, embryonic stem cells have been…

    breakthrough in 2006 where scientists had discovered a way to genetically reprogram mouse mature cells to convert them into a cell that has embryonic stem cell properties and these cells were named ‘induced pluripotent stem cells’ although it is still undetermined whether this new stem cell and embryonic stem cells are critically different. Human induced pluripotent stem cells were developed a year later in 2007. Scientists are optimistic about these stem cells and they are now being used within…

    Embryonic Stem Cell is Pertinent to Finding Cures Diseases, sicknesses, burns, and infections: how can this world ever be cured? It was not until recently in 1998 when a promising cure was discovered, the embryonic stem cell (ESC). According to Christine Watkins in one of her social issues books titled Human Embryo Experimentation, ESC was discovered by both James Thomson at the University of Wisconsin and John Gearhart at the University of Pennsylvania (10). Thomson, a director of regenerative…

    Embryonic Stem Cells: The Cell of Many Potentials According to renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, “Stem cell research is the key to developing cures for degenerative conditions like Parkinson 's and motor neuron disease from which I and many others suffer. The fact that the cells may come from embryos is not an objection, because the embryos are going to die anyway.” Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have two important abilities. Firstly, they have the ability to renewed themselves…
