The much publicized stem cell research debate focusing on moral arguments is off target with the goal of real progress in the direction of human physiological benefits potential. No matter what side of this issue you come down on, practical considerations ultimately trump this emotionally clouded subject. Stem cells are a valuable renewing asset of human physiology and thus are deserving of our intense interest, but passionate disagreement about research and cloning issues miss the mark of discovering just how simply we can use what we already know about stem cells and how we can benefit from that knowledge to improve the health of everyone.
Let us start with the basics. Stem cells are produced in the bone marrow of our bodies. They have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell or a red blood cell. Stem cells have the ability to regenerate any other cell in the body. Thus a stem cell can become a neuron, a liver cell, a brain cell, a fingernail cell, or any other cell that needs to be replaced or repaired.
Because recent progress has been made in the area of naturally increasing the production of stem cells in the human body, researchers mistakenly believe that the injection or the artificial means of increasing the stem cell count in a person is the pathway to curing diseases. This line of experimentation has already shown to be a direct route to disaster. Implanting stem cells in laboratory animals has created malignant tumors and has otherwise resulted in various counterproductive effects ranging from slow and costly to lethal. There is no substitute for the body's natural production of stem cells. This system has been developed over eons as opposed to the recently generated arrogance and stupidity of our thought processes that think this marvel of human physiological engineering can be reproduced in a laboratory.
Compare, if you will, the costs of helping the human body naturally increase its stem cell output with artificial method of harvesting and injecting stem cells into the body. The cost of increasing your stem cell output naturally is about $50 to $100 dollars. This method of increasing cellular function through the addition of certain nutrients to your diet will produce about 1 trillion stem cells in one week. No waiting for the stem cells to activate. There is no risk of rejection because these stem cells are produced from your own bone marrow. There is no risk of these stem cells mutating into some hideous malignancy because these stem cells did not come from somewhere outside of your body. Contrast this with an injection of between 200 and a million stem cells from questionable sources for between $15,000 and $250,000. Plus the fact that you will have to wait for your immune system to recover from the transplant and hope that enough of the transplanted stem cells survive the attack of your own white blood cells to do any good. Let me think while I contemplate budgetary constraints and health risk factors. Nope, I think I'll forgo the freakish laboratory science experiments and choose the healthy natural way to stem cell generation and recovery. Shall we rethink this thing called stem cell research? As I think about this subject, I come up with something like, "very interesting, but dumb!"
Research done on embryonic stem cells are obviously not going to be the source of a cure for anything except the search for some black hole in which to dump a lot of resources that can be allocated to much wiser pursuits. It has been shown that the safe, natural and effective increase of stem cells in the human body can be achieved by the addition of certain nutrients to your diet. Give your body the nutrients it needs to produce trillions of stem cells on its own. Recent research shows that adding these necessary ingredients to your daily food intake will result in an increase in the stem cell count coming form your own bone marrow stem cell production. This situation can lead to the restoration of cell function throughout the body. And it is important to consider that this can be achieved with but a small fraction of the cost of such extravagant and risk laden procedures as are mentioned above. The fact that safe and effective increased stem cell production can be induced by dietary supplementation is a common sense approach that needs to be considered as a worthy course of action against the backdrop of this rather bizarre public display of emotional outbursts, hastily funded research, morally based arguments and fantastically expensive therapies that we have been obsessed with lately.
Our new understanding of how stimulating the development of bone marrow stem cells, which have the capacity to develop into any cell the body needs, has provided us with a scientific understanding of how many different areas of the human body can be maintained and repaired where our previous knowledge of such benefits were thought not to be possible. Restorations in such vital and complex areas as brain function with dietary supplementation as the catalyst is an amazing discovery. Imagine, if you will that people who have suffered the loss of brain and central nervous system function due to strokes, trauma or neurodegenerative disorders can heal and regain lost abilities that previously physicians and scientists had regarded as permanent and irreversible. That is the magic of the properly supported human machine.
So, don't hold your breath for embryonic stem cell research to develop the cure for Alzheimers or anything else. That just "ain't goin' ta' happen'." Help your body produce all of the stem cells needed to maintain and repair itself with appropriate nutritional support. Remember to move your body, eat well, supplement wisely, drink plenty of pure, filtered, and enhanced water and support your body's natural ability to produce the stem cells necessary to maintain and repair itself while it continues to move you toward health and wellness.
