Researchers in California and Ecuador have discovered that non-controversial adult stem cells from bone marrow can be used to treat patients with spinal-cord injuries.
More than 50 patients with spinal injuries were injected with their own bone-marrow cells. To date, the patients have reported significant improvement and a better quality of life without serious complications.
This is just one of three recently published studies that demonstrate how adult stem cells are treating patients with spinal cord injury. Ironically, no one from the mainstream media reported any of these successes.
