By Dave Andrusko The beauty of the web is that one thing leads to another to another with often times fascinating results. Such is what happened when I was trolling for information to reply to a friend. I ran across a piece written by the late Robin Toner, under the headline, “The abortion debate, stuck …Continue reading "Science, culture, public attitudes are creating a “More Fetally Aware Society”"

By Dave Andrusko In a first-of-its-kind study published in Circulation Research, an American Heart Association journal, researchers from Universidad de los Andes in Chile found that stem cells derived from the umbilical cords of newborn babies may lead to repairs in damaged hearts and improvements in heart muscle. “We are encouraged by our findings because …Continue reading "Stem cells derived from the umbilical cords of newborn babies show promise in repairing damaged hearts"
By Dave Andrusko Later today or more likely tomorrow I will post a story that I’ve tried to get to since last Friday. In a controlled study, patients received a single injection of a type of adult stem cell, isolated from umbilical cords.

Bush’s embryonic stem cell funding policy. So have many others for many years as a way of prevailing in ethical or political disputes, including against yours truly. In actuality, the …Continue reading "“Nature” Says Stop the ‘Anti-Science’ Slur"
