Human skin cells have been reprogrammed by two groups of scientists to mimic embryonic stem cells with the potential to become any tissue in the body.
The breakthrough promises a plentiful new source of cells for use in research into new treatments for many diseases.

Wow what do you think people, if this is true then we can now make a plentiful supply of stem cells, without the moral dilema of having to take them from embryos.

And now we can take the skin of a patient who needs to be treated, turn it into stem cells, grow a new heart or kidney, and the chances of rejection are much slimmer because your using your own body matter to create it.

This world just crazier and more exciting by the second.
