A happy day

Today is Stem Cell Day in my book because today Obama lifted the ban on the science of stem cells. I love the possibilities these lovely little cells give us for solving diseases. I'm excited for the science community to have a chance to revolutionize the way we cure disease. Here's a quote from this article:

Embryonic stem cells are master cells that can morph into any cell of the body. Scientists hope to harness them so they can create replacement tissues to treat a variety of diseases – such as new insulin-producing cells for diabetics, cells that could help those with Parkinson's disease or maybe even Alzheimer's, or new nerve connections to restore movement after spinal injury.

Wouldn't that be so great! c.
