Yeezus's Stem Cells

Stem Cells Are a "Yeezy" Solution to Many Problems!

What are stem cells?

Stem cells in a nutshell are cells that can turn into different types of cells in the body, which is called differentiation. A normal cell cannot turn into another cell type. There are actually two types of stem cells : embryonic and adult stem cells. Adult stem cells are usually limited to becoming certain types of cells, while the embryonic stem cells can become virtually any cell in the body.

Where do stem cells come from?

Embryonic stem cells come from a developing fetus, while adult stem cells are found in certain organs and tissue. As stated earlier, they are usually limited to becoming certain types of cells, while the embryonic stem cells can become virtually any cell in the body.

Why Are They Useful?

Stem cell research is a massive step in healing many injuries that can't be healed normally. For example, you can reverse the damage done in a heart attack by placing stem cells that turn into new cardiac muscle cells (heart cells). Embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells have differences in their use. Since embryonic stem cells can turn into any cell type, they are easier to work with. Adult stem cells usually have a specific type of cell they can turn into, like bone marrow cells that produce red blood cells.

Ethics

Stem cells are HIGHLY controversial because to acquire embryonic stem cells, the fetus has to be killed. There are many arguments about the life of the embryo. However, adult stem cells can be acquired from the person and are more likely to be accepted by the body. They are also harder to get.

I believe that stem cell research should continue. They can help many patients born with or who were affected by serious conditions. It is a group effort of people to accept stem cell research and to develop it.
