Gearhart Statement

DR. JOHN GEARHART (Johns Hopkins Univ) gained int’l recognition 4 years ago when he first extracted pluripotent stem cells from aborted babies. He is now quoted as stating that adult stem cell technology may have greater therapeutic potential than embryonic stem cells. This is an important statement from Dr. Gearhart.
