Scientists Create Stem Cells From Teeth

A recent discovery by Japanese scientists could reshape the embryonic stem cell debate. The scientists claim that “wisdom teeth could be a suitable alternative to human embryos as a source for therapeutic stem cells.”

Stems cells are important because some studies support their ability to fight numerous life-threatening diseases. In recent years, the proposed usage of embryonic stem cells has caused heated debates between pro-life and pro-choice groups.
