    If theres one thing I can tip my hat to with Obama's presidency it's lifting the strict limits on stem cell research. :clap2:

    Hopefully even more progress can be made in the coming future. Though I think this will start up a interesting discussion about "stem cell banks". I'm sure they have these somewhere, but a place where you can store stem cells of say from your retinas or whatever in case you ever need them.

    Like here, if you have both eyes blinded, they can't do anything. However, if you had these stem cells, you would be able to.

    Not sure if it's feasible, possible, or have been done already, but it does sound like a good idea if both of those things.

    they already have cord blood banks....stem cell banks dont seem that different....i am amazed at the repression of this research by the gop...i think we should be going full speed..medically advances should be pursued at all costs...hell we all want to live forever it does seem
