Pray This Pans Out?

Adult stem cells found to have the same characteristics as embryonic ones in a new study. Sounds pretty cool, except that --as with fetal tissue before them-- the rapid cell division of embryonic stem cells has so far proven to be negative --scientists can't control their growth, with freakish results when they are transplanted into actual subjects. Nevertheless, it can only be a good thing if a consensus develops we don't need embryonic stem cells.
