Just want to throw this out there. This looks like a significant discovery to me. Maybe this will interest some of you too. It certainly will help many people down the line.

Stem cell researchers are heralding a "major scientific discovery", with the potential to start a new age of personalised medicine.
Scientists in Japan showed stem cells can now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid.
Stem cells can transform into any tissue and are already being trialled for healing the eye, heart and brain.
The latest development, published in the journal Nature, could make the technology cheaper, faster and safer.

And Prof Lovell-Badge said: "It is going to be a while before the nature of these cells are understood, and whether they might prove to be useful for developing therapies, but the really intriguing thing to discover will be the mechanism underlying how a low pH shock triggers reprogramming - and why it does not happen when we eat lemon or vinegar or drink cola?"

Intriguing, isn't it? Sounds like a contradiction or an oxymoron. We associate low pH with cancer, so finding the solution to this mystery will no doubt be important.

Sounds like its similar to cancer, after all cancer is a mutated cell.

We are ingesting foods that aren't produced by earths good old natural factory of life, Gods design. We f***d with the source code. We are mixing hairspray, hair gels, air pollutants from industries/fossil fuels, hormones in the water, fluoride, medication, bad sleeping habits, poor exposure to the sun, high exposure to electromagnetic fields, heavy metals, over exposure to information, visual pollution, loud unnatural sounds, stress, the list can go on and on. Mixing all those are normal, yet we don't know what they do to us in the long run.

All those newly added features given to us by modern society is what is causing more people to get sick faster and inhibit them from healing themselves with the natural faculties that are our bodies.

Will a scientist be able to study all these effects of all those factors at the same time? No! They test one thing at a time and say: "It is okay!"
