Introduction
Scientists for medical research have used embryonic stem cells in the past. Scientists have had amazing success while using these stem cells in their research. However, embryonic stem cell research has become a very controversial topic. With this controversy, it has become very hard to receive permission to do research on embryonic stem cells. Although scientists are in the early stages of research, the outcomes look very promising, making me very hopeful that this controversy will end soon, and scientist will continue to improve their medical research using stem cells. Although I had little prior knowledge of this topic, I have become very interested in embryonic stem cells. I have begun to understand how beneficial these stem cells could become in the medical field.
Background
Researching embryonic stem cells is a very ingenious approach to study and develop treatments in the medical field. Scientists have worked with embryonic stem cells since the 1930s. (Klimas) Through this method of research, scientists have been able to accomplish many incredible medical advancements including the devolvement of vaccines, such as polio, and the pursuit of treatments from vision loss, to cancer, to AIDS, as well as with bone marrow transplants. (“Scientists Say…”) Along with the wonderful things that scientists have already found through their research with embryonic stem cells, they believe that there are astonishing medical achievements that lie ahead in the future of…
