    Very interesting and pretty cool, except where the cells come from. Not good.

    I can foresee a future where, when after all the research is done, people will wonder about all the kerfuffle that occured about the use of stem cells. If a person had a stem cell cured disease they would simply go to their physican who would take a skin sample, send it off to a lab with a note as to the condition and voila! But first we, as a society, have to take baby steps along that path, hopefully the path will be short.

    I'll make sure to mention that to my friend Brian who has been blind for 25 yrs. as a result of a car accident.

    I see more promise with silicone than stem cells.http://science.howstuffworks.com/inn...al-vision2.htm

    I don't care which approach "wins", since we all win if we can restore sight.

    Agreed. It's amazing what science is doing these days. I keep hoping for some sort of energy renaissance.
