"25 women have died and 6,000 have complained of complications."
After viewing this video, if you're interested in the list of health problems that have been helped by embryonic stem cell research (ESCR), check out the righthand column of this chart.
Try not to look at the lefthand column, though.
Then check this out: the peer-reviewed references sample list. It's a PDF file, but opens quickly. Fifteen pages. Just a sample of the published studies from which the above chart was gleaned. A few are listed under more than one benefit category, and many studies were published by more than one respected science journal (meaning more than once these passed strenuous medical-expert-peer-reviews and thus were found not to be "quackery"), but there are as many as 150 studies there citing non-ESCR benefits found for:
spinal cord injury,
diseases of the: bladder, liver, coronary arteries, eyes, metabolism, blood (including sickle cell anemia and Epstein-Barr) and autoimmune systems (including lupus, Crohn's and Multiple Sclerosis),
cancers of the: blood (leukemias), ovaries, brain, eyes, lymph nodes, breasts, testicles and kidneys,
acute heart damage,
and gangrene reversal.
And more with really complex names you can read for yourself.
