Bush triples funding for Malaria, Aids, and Tuberculosis


why do you keep posting this and not mentioning that it was all tied to those countries teaching abstinence only education, which almost certainly increased the rate of HIV infection?

Provide a link, please ... according to the NIH, stem cells have not been used to cure these diseases as of yet. They have been used to treat some diseases.

http://stemcells.nih...info/health.asp

not yet and that's probably not where their primary application will lie. (it doesn't make sense, for example, to treat rapidly reproducing cells with...more cells?) however, they're already using them to grow peoples' jaws back and human cells were used in rats to repair spinal chord damage in rats so it's difficult to say this is anything but the most promising and exciting breakthrough in medicine since, oh, I don't know, daily baths.

Say it with me....proteomics. Better drug design, more efficient therapeutic regimens, and maybe even superpowers!! Now, give me your money.

Stem Cell research may be a big dead end...Chasing energy alternatives may be as well, but I suppose as long as the dems get to waste a bunch of money trying, it's OK!


That's the spirit!

did you know that the term stem cells doesn't just refer to embryonic stem cells?


Yes ... the Web site I linked is the National Institutes of Health, and if you will do your research, you will know that none of these diseases have been cured by stem cells -- adult or embryonic.
