We have blocked the cure for diabetes

Stem cells apparently have the ability to regenerate pancretic damage and cure diabetes. It's likely that cloned embryonic stem cells may have to be used for full regeneration and healing. Research into this technology has been blocked.

"The commercial sector will do their thing, which is in secrecy. They will go only in those directions that can make money and leave unexplored or undone those things which don't have markets. That's really what I forecast. " - Paul Berg

Should our administrtion be allowed to block life-giving research? Shold the military and the corporations own our bodies? Voice your support to publicly fund this important research area. 80% of the major research is done by universities. Cures for diseases are too important to trust entirely to corporations. It's never too late to start caring.
