MSNBC is running a three part piece from Newsweek on the politics, science, and recent history of embryonic and adult stem cell research. It is good that the fundamental technologies of future regenerative medicine are being given far more time in the press. Setting aside from the heated - and ultimately transient - political battles, science and funding follows the will of the people in the long term. This press coverage is a wonderful opportunity to educate many more people about the possibilities offered by medical science, healthy life extension, curing age-related conditions, and tackling the aging process itself. Greater education leads to public understanding, support, and demand for more research.
