There are some inner healers within us and why not we exploit them.There were a lot of controversy about the embryonic stem cells but reprogramming cells from our own body could give them the therapeutic power of embryonic stem cells without any political controversy.
There are some key concepts which have been published in the 'Scientific American' Page 47 of May 2010 issue., which are quoted below for our readers regarding the stem cells and the Biological Clock. There are new findings about the stem cells.
Quoted "*Induced pluripotent stem cells are mature body cells that have been made to change their identities and revert to an embryolike- without the help of eggs or embryos.
*Rejuvenating the normal body cells of any individual- then converting them to any of the 220 human cell types- could yield new disease treatments and custom replacement tissues.
* Scientists are now working to understand how these cells are able to reverse their biological clocks and whether the newest kind of stem cells will prove as powerful as embryonic cells."
The technology is growing exponentially and every sign points to the successful conquer of aging and defeating all the miseries.
It is true that we have a long way to reach the 'Fountain Of Youth' but I am sure the next generations will be able to drink from the 'fountain of Youth'.
