oh, looks like those Chinese treatments I posted earlier could just be a scam on western visitors for $20k/each. (who could’ve guessed??)

but this formerly blind guy is for real and can actually see colors and movements, thanks to stem cell transplants from a 3-year old:

Your posts would indicate that the “breakthrough” is indeed for non-embryonic stem cells. Two of the posts do not mention what type of stem cell is being employed. The one post which is specific states that the Chinese are using Umbilical stem cells not embryonic stem cells. This is not an ethical controversy. It is a science controversy. If anyone is able to cure people with umbilical stem cells, then more power to them!
