"Big News" is really No News in the embryonic stem cell industry...

Why It Isn't Just The "Lady Justice Statue" That's Blindfolded

The liberal media is just faint with breathless overexcitement today, oh, my: Human embryonic stem cells heal the hearts of rats.

Pardon my Noo Yawk bluntness, but-- big freakin' whoop.

Four years ago, this was already done, with human hearts, and by adult stem cells (ASCs):

Four out of a group of five seriously ill Brazilian heart-failure patients no longer needed a heart transplant after being treated with their own stem cells.

That study, published in Circulation Journal in 2003, reported regenerated damaged heart tissue from ASCs gleaned from patients' own bone marrow. ["Transendocardial, autologous bone marrow cell transplantation for severe, chronic ischemic heart failure." Perin EC, Dohmann HF, Borojevic R, et al. Circulation 2003 May 13;107(18):e9040-2]

Of that finding, Dr. Michael Rosen of Columbia University said, "This is the first approach where you have an opportunity to actually heal a heart."

(Ahem) The FIRST. Didn't see that plastered across the major media then, did we?

(Ahem Two) That's COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, of NEW YORK CITY, the IVY LEAGUE university.

One real adult stem cell heart success not enough? How about 16 additional ones published in 18 respected medical journals including Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Journal Thoracic Cardiovascular Surgery, Circulation, Stem Cells and The Lancet?

Heck, the European Society of Cardiology even has concluded that
Cardiac stem cells (CSC) are indeed able to proliferate giving rise to other stem cells (property named self-renewal); they can differentiate into all the cells composing the cardiac tissue.
More and more, we Americans are being fed slop by not only the media but the medicos.
