Default Embryonic Vs Adult-Which Stem Cell Is the One To Use?



I have been doing research lately for college and I have discovered that the debate of stem cell research is not so much if it is ok to do, but more what kind of stem cells to use. Obama's new executive order, to give embryonic stem cell research federal funds, seems to be pushing the debate more towards the embryonic side, is this the way to go?

The debate has always been about the moral issue and not the scientific issue. Most people are against it because embryonic stem cell research requires embryos and they are living things.

I had been reading that scientists think embryonic stem cells could be more efficient and they seem more promising than adult stem cell. Its just pure speculation. Not enough research or test has been done on embryonic stem cell to say it is better than adult stem cell research.

Check out [Only registered users see links. ]. They seem to have latest updates on such stuff.

Whatever the debate is, I dont see any harm in funding both research types. The obama order to lift the ban on embryonic stem cell research is a small step.

most stem cell therapy touted today are based on adult stem cells. I can only think of two that are based on embryonic stem cells, and they are still at clinical trial stage. I think research on embryonic stem cells is ok, as long as no new cell lines are created (so no new fetuses are killed), which is the main criteria for funding now. Research on as many fronts should be encouraged, instead of limiting only in 1 direction.
