Any cell can be rewound to a pre-embryonic state, according to stem cell researchers.   Scientists in Japan and at Harvard said they found that stem cells, which can transform into any tissue and potentially regenerate the body, could be quickly made by dipping blood cells into an acid bath or under other physical pressure.   The research, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, was conducted on mice, but if the results can be repeated in humans, disease treatment and physical healing could be revolutionized.….MORE

About Indian Rocks Bridge

We have a HUGE responsibility to protect our children and their futures. Our Gulf of Mexico has nearly been destroyed by the Deep-water Horizon catastrophe and many families here will never recover. Paradise lost, so it goes. I’m doing my best to apolitically educate anyone that cares about the impact on our environment by technology and “for-profit” progress. We forget, too frequently that we SHARE this planet with millions of other life-forms and as the most “powerful” species, we must be more cognizant of our greed versus the well-being of our planet. Thanks again for visiting and please check back often. -Gregg indianrocksbridge@yahoo.com
