"The most recent scientific evidence shows the use of human embryos for therapeutic stem cell research to be ineffective and unnecessary," says Dr. Fazale Rana, one of the world's top three leading experts in origin of life research.
Internationally respected biochemist Dr. Fazale Rana calls embryonic stem cell research "sloppy science" and says that the most recent origin of life research shows stem cells derived from alternative sources hold more promise than those taken from human embryos.
In spite of the research, many news reports suggest that embryonic stem cells hold the cure for all types of diseases and Americans are being deprived of potentially life-saving discoveries due to the ban on the use of embryos.
According to Dr. Rana and a host of other scientists, alternative sources such as adult stem cells are highly preferable for therapeutic stem cell research and do not raise the ethical and moral concerns that surround the destruction of human embryos. Dr. Rana's research reveals:
- Why the use of human embryos is unnecessary and ineffective
- The most recent bio-chemical research that shows stem cells are ineffective in the treatment of AlzheimerÂs and related diseases
- Why ethical alternatives that do not involve the destruction of human embryos are far better for therapeutic research
- Why the best avenues of research do not raise morality issues.
Dr. Fazale 'Fuz' Rana is one of the worldÂs leading experts in the field of origin of life research and author of the new book, "Origins of Life: Biblical and Evolutionary Models Face Off." Find out the answers to these and a host of other questions surrounding this heated controversy.
ÂThere are better alternatives that do not involve the use of human embryos,Â says Dr. Rana. ÂWhen scientific research is conducted properly it does not raise morality issues.Â
