What Is The Big Deal About Stem Cell Therapy?

It seems like every time we turn on the TV or flip open a magazine people are talking about … you got it … stem cells! So what’s the big deal about stem cells and why are people so up in arms about it?

Well, there are actually two big deals about stem cells:

  1. Stem cell therapy has been shown to have super regenerative powers for healing.
  2. The uproar is over which type of stem cells are being used.

Here’s a quick primer about stem cells that ought to really help clear things up if you are confused about stem cells and stem cell therapy (as quoted from Simplexity Health):

There are two basic types of stem cells-embryonic and adult. While controversy surrounds the use of embryonic stem cells, no such debate exists with the use of adult stem cells, which are naturally occurring in the body. All stem cells are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods of time, and they can give rise to specialized cells.

According to the National Institutes of Health, stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, a skin cell, etc. When released, new stem cells migrate to the areas of the body where they are needed most as we grow older. Serving as a repair system for the body, stem cells can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as a person or animal is alive.
