Human cadaver brains may provide new stem cells | FOX 5 WTTG

No, it isn’t the teaser to a new horror movie, although you can bet someone will use this as a springboard for one–scientists have indeed figured out how to induce dead cells to become just about kind of cell they need. Adult stem cell success is an old story, which begs the question: why do we hear more about fetal stem cell research?

The more we hear about stem cell science, the more I begin to wonder if hospitals won’t soon become cell farms….which brings me back to the horror story angle. Hmm…..
