What are Stem Cells and how are they helpful

A stem cell is essentially a “blank” cell, it could become a different cell type in the body.It could be a skin, muscle, or a nerve cell. These cells are microscopic in size. Invisable to the naked eye. They can be used to replace or heal tissues and cells in the body. In my opinion I think that this is a good yet a bad thing to research... for instance it's good so then we can find a way to prevent illness and heal the broken cells in the body. What's not so good is that researchers are testing unborn babies.

What are Stem Cells??

Adult stem cells are a “natural” solution. They naturally exist in our bodies, and they provide a natural repair for many tissues in our bodies.They are called microenvironment in an adult body. Embryonic stem cells are in the microenvironment in the embryo, where they sometimes cause tumors and immune system shutdown.

bad things about Stem Cells..

  • Stem cells have potential in health and medical research. Scientists are studying how stem cells transform, and what it does to the body and how people are today and what makes the human race. Diseases like cancer or birth defects might be present because of problems in the normal cells.
  • Use of embryonic stem cells involves the destruction of blastocysts formed from from laboratory-fertilized human eggs. This the only only reason why we cant study this in the united states. It is because of the population differences in human conduct.

good things about stem cells

The benefits of stem cell research have a good outcome that they overlap other issues.

Frequently asked questions about Stem Cells......

  • Are Stem Cell Treatments dangerous?
A stem cell transplant does have risks of complications, maybe even death.

You must have a good reason for your transplant, and your type of transplant. Your age and your overall health is important as well.

  • Can Stem Cells cause cancer?
Cancer stem cells that divide might cause a tumour to grow. These cells can copy themselves and also produce more cells called transit amplifying cells.

  • What is an iPS cell?
Induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell that can be generated directly from adultcells. RESORCES. WWW.UTUBE.COM stemcellvideo
