Stem Cells and ALS

Stem Cells Are The Answer!
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are cells that are "blank" and can be made into any type of cell. They are imperative in curing many different types of diseases (about 70) including cancers, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, blindness, and many more. It is important that we realize the uses of stem cells because we can cure people and keep diseases at a minimum.
Where Do You Get Stem Cells From?
Stem cells are embryonic cells. This means that they come from embryos that are about 3 to 5 days of age. It is important to obtain them this early because they can turn into any type of cell that the body requires. The embryo they take from has about 150 cells and is called a blastocyst. With the stem cells that are taken many things are possible.
What Can We Use Stem Cells For?
Stem cells can be used in many different ways. The most common use is stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is when doctors use stem cells to cure diseases like cancer. For example if a person has bone cancer and the marrow is slowly dying, the stem cells can be placed into the bone to regrow the lost bone marrow cells. They are very useful in fighting diseases and bone cancer is just one of the things they can cure.
Are They Ethical?
Stem cells have been said to be unethical and that it is not right to use stem cells, but we approve the use of stem cells and believe they can only help us excel in medicine. They are a healthy non harmful way to cure diseases. While some may not agree, we here at our hospital think it is a great advancement.
Stem Cells Are The New Medicine!
These stem cells have many uses and can be utilized for the good of mankind. For example, ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a disease that kills nerve cells and causes signals not to be transmitted to the muscle, is a disease that can possibly be cured with stem cells.
Looking For Patients In Their Early Stages of ALS
We can use stem cells to help cure ALS in its early stages. We need patients dedicated to the stem cell cause and we guarantee you will walk out healthy and back to normal!
