From Globe Technology, an update on legislative battles over embryonic stem cell regulation in Canada. The debate has been a long one. Whether or not the current bill passes, Canada will still have a supportive atmosphere for this research in comparison to the US and much of the EU. Embryonic stem cell research is, as we should all know by now, essential for the rapid development of regenerative medicine for longer, healthier lives. Blocking and hindering this research directly impacts our future health, longevity and access to advanced medicine.
