    2012 Embryonic vs. Adult Stem Cells - Why Jean Swenson Doesn’t Support Embryonic Research and Why An Audience Would Listen As science becomes more and more advanced‚ there are many more ways to combat illnesses. Some of these are more successful and widely known‚ but one of the more controversial is stem cell research. In the article "Embryonic Stem Cell Fairy Tales"‚ Jean Swenson attempts to educate the public on why she believes many are prone to believing that embryonic stem cells (which

  • Embryonic Stem Cells

    Definition of ESCs Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are capable of propagating themselves indefinitely and can retain their ability to make all cell types within the organism. They form at the blastocyst stage of development. A blastocyst is a hollow ball of cells that is smaller than a pinhead. It has three structures- trophoblast‚ blastocoels and inner cell mass (Mandal‚ 2001). The embryonic stem cells lie within this ball of cells. Firstly‚ they are derived from embryos‚ specially obtained from eggs

    Rebecca Harris Mrs. Ruth English 12 Honors 12 March 2013 Embryonic Stem Cell Research Embryonic Stem cell research is it an ethical issue or medical miracle? Embryonic stem cell research is a method of retrieving the inner cells from a fetus (Korenman). The main issues with embryonic stem cells are where they come from‚ the ethical issues‚ what they can do‚ and the treatments used with them. Because of the advances Embryonic Stem Cell Research has made in cancer‚ blood disorders‚ and other diseases

    Embryonic stem cells The term "stem cell" in Websters dictionary defines it as "An unspecialized cell that gives rise to differentiated cells"‚ which is a fancy way of saying "stem cells can be used to copy and turn into any other type of cell". To understand Embryonic stem cells‚ we must go back to the Discovery of stem cells in general. Stem cell research first dates back to the late 1800’s‚ when scientist first observed evidence of cells able to produce other cell types. There was a gap in

    Excellent Embryos Stem cell treatment is a controversial topic of discussion among scientists and researchers today. By studying these cells‚ researchers have the potential opportunity to develop a more complete understanding of cancer and birth defects—as they are due to abnormal cell division and differentiation (Frequently np). However‚ there is much debate over the ethics of using embryonic stem cells in research. The embryonic stem cells used in research are “legally obtained abortants or

    Assertion 1 The reason that embryonic stem cell researchers are agitating for taxpayer money is that their private funding has dried up. Private investors and venture capitalists are not investing in embryonic stem cell research because they perceive it to be a pipe dream unlikely to produce any progress and‚ hence‚ investment returns‚ in any reasonable time frame. —Steven Milloy LACK OF FUNDS Geron the first company to get the green light for trials‚ quit and is selling that part of the

    acceptable or wrong comes into play. Embryonic stem cell research has faced the negative spotlight for many years. The false misconceptions surrounding stem cells is clouded by the idea that they are acquired through intentionally killing a life of a potential human being. These false statements facilitated by anti-abortion organizations has slowed down the progress that could have been achieved through science on a logical and ethnically driven basis. Embryonic stem cells should be used for medical research

    difference between embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells is that an embryonic stem cell is not fully developed and with no specific cell tissues. Embryonic stem cells are found in the inner cells mass of the early embryo. The very first embryonic stem cells are totipotent (can be able to create all kinds of cells) but the rest after that are pluripotent which means that it can create many different types of cells such as white blood cells‚ nerve cells‚ and neurons. Adult stem cells are less flexible
