Stermcells can also cure aging, because it's original. If you can keep a copy of your stermcell since childhood and inject into yourself as adult, you can cure most of disease faster and reduce aging effect

Great, yet another way for the rich to live longer. I swear, pretty soon we'll be living in the dark sci-fi universe that Vampire Hunter D takes place in.

If you've never read the manga or seen either animated film, it takes place in the far future, when earth is ruled by a few ageless and (nearly) deathless vampire lords...It's plutocracy taken to the utmost extreme.

Just harvest the stem-cells from yourself at ages 7 through 10 with a dialysis machine and reverse the process at ages 40 through 44

This is common practice to cure Hodgkin's. My brother had it done.

So you don't get visions of young waifs and strays being kidnapped off the streets of India or elsewhere so their blood can be harvested for rich old folk?

I didn't think it was a cure, but a treatment. They are used treat, ie help with symptoms and or prevent an illness. Not to cure an illness. The use of them is very up for debate.

Sure it's murder, but this research isn't about murdering people.

By the way glad to hear your brother was cured. Should have been through first thing I said.

I had to have chemotherapy and radiotherapy for the cancer I had. Was told by the doctors that stemcell treatment is a 'pipe dream' it's just a treatment not a cure.

No more scary than the scientists that want to inject H2S into your cells to arrest ageing.
