Washington Post article on how stem cell clinics may be curtailed by FDA

Recommended Posts

www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/for-stem-cell-clinics-new-scrutiny-from-federal-regulators/2016/09/12/7b101896-7540-11e6-b786-19d0cb1ed06c_story.html?hpid=hp_hp-more-top-stories-2_stemcells-955pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory#comments

 

The above article from the Washing Post is about how stem cell treatments in this country are not being regulated by the FDA which is actually quite shocking since inserting stem cells of undocumented derivation in one's body seems to me quite an invasive medical procedure.  I've seen an ad for stem cell treatment for Parkinson's by a Seattle stem cell company.  The scientific research is lacking and mostly it's testimonials from the patients which could very well be the placebo effect.
