Embryonic vs. Adult

In a recent Pew Research poll, 56% of Americans said it is more important to conduct stem cell research that may lead to new medical cures than to avoid destroying human embryos during the research. But several ethical alternatives to embryonic stem cell research that hold great promise are available.

Here's a great article that talks more about the differences in stem cells. Embryonic is not the way to go and I'm disappointed that our federal government overturned the ban on embryonic research in April because it will focus federal dollars in that area when adult stem cells are the way to go both ethically and scientifically.
