Brazilians Replicate Heart Stem Cell Successes

(From Reuters). Following on the heels of successful US applications of stem cell therapy to regenerate heart damage, Brazilian researchers have succeeded in the the same procedure. Unfortunately, this working example of regenerative medicine is currently blocked by the FDA in the US. Several thousand people die in the US every day from heart-related problems. I encourage you to write to your representatives and ask them why this amazing, successful stem cell therapy is being squashed. People are dying today for lack of this therapy; one day you will be one of them.
