good news for medical research

Here's an early piece of positive change: FDA approval of the first trials of embryonic stem cells in humans. Stem cell research shows so much promise for serious conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, damage from heart attacks, Alzheimer's disease, and other issues. I feel hopeful that President Obama (it feels SO good to write that) will overturn Shrub's ban on most types of stem cell research in the near future, and equally hopefully that this research will generate significant methods of treatment in the next 20 years.
