Stem cells from amniotic cells...
Just in case you missed this news bite, it looks like stem cells from amniotic fluid might be better than embryonic stem cells afterall:
"In addition, for reasons that are still poorly understood, the amniotic cells do not seem to form the tumors known as teratomas that sometimes arise from embryonic stem cells implanted in animals."
Read entire story here. Yep, I think I'll take a pass on the whole tumors bit if you don't mind.
