    Read the whole story here:

    Stem cells can be engineered to kill HIV, scientists show

    That's fucking awesome, score another one for stem cells.

    If this is true then why the fuck is everyone still bitching about this?

    I think this is great. Doing more and more stem cell research seems like a no brainer to me.

    I agree, I've voted Yes on every Pro-Stem Cell bill thats come my way. I'm very Pro-stem cell research. Much like you said, its a no-brainer to further push our knowledge of what they can do, even if it means "playing god".

    It seems like Stem Cells really are the answer for so many of our problems. i remember when this was a huge controversial issue like a decade ago. Hopefully this will provide more funding for the research, this is awesome to read.

    That's because a lot of misinformed politicians like a certain guy with a name that sounds like Beorge Gush thought that allowing stem cell researching was going to lead to baby farms where fetuses were harvested for their cells.

    Are these embryonic stem cells? Or adult ones? And if they are embryonic - could we have done the same thing with adult stem cells?

    From what I've heard (albeit a while ago) basically all breakthroughs we've had were with adult stem cells.
