A new break through in stem cell research and application has just been uncovered. Scientists in new zeland have just concluded a six year research trial where they have successfully placed stem cells in a brain and seen them converted into brain cells. I assume this will be hailed as revolutionary and it is easy to imagine application of something such as this. Initially cures or treatment for degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer or parkinsons. But what i am interested in seeing, is how western societies will manipulate this technology for the benefit of the rich. Mainly i am curious to see how they will go about doing something lime this. Personally i feel the spine will be the first place; for all those rich fat cats stuck in wheel chairs pig . Then the penis, i dont know how but some how they will warp this technology for sexual application. And then who knows, we will have to wait and see.

that's nuts.

As for it being manipulated for profit, I'm willing to bet my beans that if they discover how to cure Alzheimer's or Parkinson's, the player in charge will take it straight to the patent office to reap in the profits for it, and after that scarcity is within their hands.

That's just my guess though. Maybe they can't maintain 100% ownership over a treatment like that, and that it will be available to the public without being channelled through this ONE company (*crosses fingers*)

I forgot what medicine it was, but there was this woman who discovered a revolutionary treatment for something that was killing thousands of people, and she released the chemical composition to the public without patenting it so that it can be accessed to everybody for a reasonable rate... i forgot who she is but she's a part of history now.

Just an update for people interested with this, the scientist have been awarded the nobel prize for their research.
