From the San Francisco Business Times, a good article on the current state of stem cell and theraputic cloning legislation. As you all know by now, this research is the best way forward to real, meaningful life- and health-extending medicine. Unfortunately it is under threat. The US senate is considering an outright ban (already passed by the house). California has passed a bill explicitly permitting some of this research, but as the medical marijuana controversy has shown, federal agencies will ignore state law and arrest people anyway. So step forward and do your part to support real anti-aging research today!
