Just a Thought...

Seed Magazine: "A U.S. study has found that neural stem cells repair damaged brain tissue in laboratory mice far better than previously believed, a finding that could translate into treatment for stroke and other trauma."

It occurs to me that with Traumatic Brain Injury outpacing amputations almost two to one and 28% of patients at Walter Reed suffering from a brain injury, perhaps the best way to support our returning troops is to also support stem cell research.

Yet, I think you'll find that there's a lot of overlap between people who support the war and people who don't support stem cell research. Like our president, for a start.
