Throughout our history, scientists continue to experiment and make discoveries that expand our knowledge of the world and the full potential of the matter around us. As the medical research of scientists improves, new treatments are found that enable people to have a longer lifespan and live healthier. Medical researchers continue to discover new medicines that help people overcome fatal diseases and allow them to achieve a more sustainable life. As scientists research the potential of treatment for diseases, there is a promising future in stem cells that offer a possible treatment for a wide variety of diseases. Scientists discover the capabilities of stem cells through their ability to repair, their opportunity of treatment, and their
Stem Cell research and its funding have caused a lot of controversy throughout the past years. Stem cells are cells that are present in all living organisms. These cells have the potential to grow into any type of cell, including blood cells, nerves, muscles, and pancreatic cells. Stem cell research is essential because of the beneficial aspects it has to offer. Stem cells could potentially treat conditions such as Alzheimer 's, Parkinson 's, birth defects, strokes, Diabetes, cancer, and help in the reconstruction of severely damaged organs. Although stem cell research withholds great potential for many medical advances, a lot of controversy surrounds the sources and methods of obtaining stem cells and the possibility of improper usage of the knowledge acquired from research and experimentation. It is necessary for scientist to continue research as well as recognizing any ethical issues that may be present.
Stem cell research has been quite a controversial topic since its origin in the 1960s by Gopal Das and Joseph Altman. Of course, anything that uses a human embryo would be. Stem cell research could open a vast number of new doors for modern science, it could let us test new drugs, one of which could be the unfound cure for AIDS or Alzheimer’s disease. However, this branch of science comes at a high price, the price of a human life that is only five to six days
In the past two decades, many technological and scientific advances have been made in order to make life easier for many people who suffer from cancer, disease and sickness. Among these advances there is something revolutionary called stem cells. Stem cells can help restore and regenerate almost all parts of the human body such as the heart, kidney, liver, and many other organs. Although stem cells offer a lot, there are many views against and for stem cells, and among these views lies the debate of whether stem cells should be legalized or not (NIH 2). Stem cells offer exciting new opportunities in the field of science such as regenerating human body parts, but many people are still debating whether or not the use of stem cells is
What would the future of the world look like if we supported stem cell research? The benefits of stem cell research could have a long lasting impact on humans and medicine. Unfortunately, there are disadvantages and barriers that slow this research down. Stem cells are ethically debatable because of their many advantages and disadvantages.
Many, as of currently incurable diseases plague the Earth. Thanks to technological advancements and better understandings of cells, scientists believe that it may be possible to cure diseases by the use of embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are cells obtained from an embryo when they are only a few days old. Because they have only begun to differentiate, these cells have the capability of developing into any cell in the human body, and that's why they can be used for the progression of medicine. Scientists hope to cure some diseases but if that isn't possible they at least hope to create treatments using them.
I think that stem cell research could be a really really good thing for everyone. Stem cell research could be a really good thing if we wouldn’t have to kill embryo’s to get the embryonic stem cells. If the stem cells could be created from adult stem cells or from embryonic stem cells we already have than it would be great because than we could save people and also save the babies. But if we have to kill the embryos in order to get the embryonic stem cells than I would definitely not support it.
Stem Cell Research is a topic that Americans feel very strongly about, making it a highly contentious topic in the U.S. . Those who support Stem Cell Research believe it gives ample opportunity for the discovery of innovative, and lifesaving medical treatments, and not all times results in the destruction of an embryo. Some supporters point out that stem cell research results in new information that could help improve the quality of life for those who are suffering from diseases currently without curesd, among other things. Furthermore, stem cell research could potentially replace animal testing. For instance, according to “Stem Cell” neuron replacement can be used as a treatment for patients suffering from Parkinson disease (stem cell 2016).
Stem cell research is the key to profound advances in medicine that were previously unthinkable. Cure and treatment for serious diseases and major injuries are being created. New organ and tissue can be created. New drug testing will lead to safer medicine and more side effects will be spotted before the reach the market. Stem cell research is an important step to further medical
Through change and uttermost struggle, the people who care about a subject always seem to push through for what they believe in. For the sake of Embryonic Stem Cell research, the advocates tried their best to show the advancements stem cells may withhold, and for the people who disagree with the research, always seemed to put a new light on the subject, simply humanizing the research. Although the destruction of a human embryo is not something many people would view as ethical, it is something that could hold much promise for those who suffer from terminal illnesses (Sherley). When the miracle of assisting those who could not reproduce children through In Vitro Fertilization transpired the world of stem cell research was acquired (Tauer 924).
Embryonic Stem cells have led to a very long line of discussion. Whether to see it as immoral not to pursue research or immoral to pursue research, it is nonetheless very difficult to discuss. Questions are uncovered during this debate, for example, Is killing possible life (Embryos) lesser or greater than saving the already living, such as people with incurable diseases? The debate goes deeper and deeper into moral judgment and it doesn't matter whether you are religious or not in this argument because in both cases it is a life. But what if it didn't have to be a life? Further forms of research may be used to help save lives both from people who have incurable diseases and the embryos. If such research can be formed without a moral block, performance of such research should not be delayed. The possibility to save loved ones is incredible, to do so without victimizing women for embryos and killing those embryos, which could possibly behold life, only to maybe
Scientists have generally agreed that stem cells are vital to the science and medical field for they may be the solution to treat and even cure several serious medical conditions. However, not all the types of the stem cell research is widely accepted. For instance, the Embryonic Stem Cell Research, which in recent years has been largely debated in the United States. This is due to the two major arguments following this research. One, embryonic stem cell research is necessary to unravel the possibility of improving human life. Two, embryonic stem cell research involves the abortion of potential human life. It is a debate whether the life of an individual suffering from a fatal illness or injury is more priceless, or the life of a human at one
It has been I long time scenes we have spoking I Hope all is well. The other day I was reading this articles on stem cell research and embryonic stem cell research, Stem cell and embryonic stem cell research has all ready stared to help many people out like Katie Sharify in 2010 she had been in a car crash that damaged her spine, leaving her with no sensation from the chest down. Days after she learned that she would never walk again. So Her medical team provided a crash course in stem cell therapy to help Katie think things through. In this case the team had taken stem cells obtained from a five-day old embryo and converted them into cells that support communication between the brain and body. Those cells would be transplanted into the injured
The embryonic stem cells can become any type of cells that are needed. But the adult cells only can become a select few. And embryonic stem cells can be grown relatively easy. Totipotent is the most versatile cells they are made when a sperm cell reaches an egg and makes a fertilized egg. This is a totipotent egg which means it can become any cell that the body could need.
How has stem cell research affected and impacted humans? Stem cell research can help treat many medical diseases and overall help with repairing cells. These problems or diseases can be treated by using stem cell research. When studying stem cells you can look at how they develop into the heart muscle cells, which could provide clues on how to influence the heart muscle to repair itself after a heart attack. The stem cells can be used in many different ways to study diseases, identify a certain type of drug, or screen drugs. Stem cell research has shown that it can help parkinson's disease, studies show that embryonic stem cells can give rise to the neurons that parkinson's patients lack. Just like parkinson's, alzheimer's may also be treated with embryonic stem cells (Lyon np). Stem cell research holds great promise for science for helping us learn of diseases and new treatments (NHI np).
