    life and curing disease. Embryonic stem cells are the solution to the many unanswered questions surrounding these priorities. Many people question why scientists cannot simply use adult stem cells for their research instead of using embryonic stem cells. Adult stem cells have been researched for a much longer period of time and some treatments have successfully been developed from them. There are a couple of major constraints on the use of adult stem cells. They have proven to be very difficult...
