I saw that doctors in the US have found a way of manipulating stem cells in a way that may be viable for those with ethical concerns.
I know stem cell research is allowed in some countries but has yet to be sanctioned here in Australia. There is a conscience vote coming up soon, which despite vocal opposition from church groups, seems set to go through. I feel this is important because I think there are some amazing scientists here (not 'dissing' other countries
). I mean, they've just put out a vaccination for cervical cancer, which I find extraordinary (the science, not the condition).
I know this is a can of worms but it sounds promising. I heard it on our local (to Australia) news and haven't looked into it to provide a link, sorry. Call me an optimist but I reckon that in a decade, they'll be able to harvest cells from us, do the jiggery-pokery and give us (back) functioning t-cells.
On a personal note and unconnected with the subject line, my latest hba1c result was 5.4. Given my poor diet over the period that saw me moving house, I consider it amazing. I thought I'd be over 6.
