In another blow to the Embryonic Stem Cell (ESCR) Voodoo medicine, researchers have been able to take umbilical cord stem cells (technically part of the fetus, not the mother – check the DNA) and grow a small liver from the stem cells found in the cord: British scientists have grown the world’s first artificial liver […]
