Adult Stem Cell Triumphs Becoming Common News

This wonderful story from the Telegraph is about adult stem cells being used to save a woman's leg. It's really terrific.

It was already on my "To Blog" list this morning after having been alerted to it by Julie Schmit-Albin of Nebraska Right to Life over on Facebook. But I then came across Wesley J. Smith's wry comments about the story at his blog, Secondhand Smoke.

Smith's headline was "Oh Hum, Another Adult Stem Cell Success" and his lead into the story was "These adult stem cell successes are getting pretty oh, hum -- unless you are the lucky patients benefiting from breakthroughs."


Smith's concluding sentece is also worth hanging on to: "Like I always say, good ethics leads to good science. Onward."
