Abstract:  Biological science is being bombarded with problems of HIV, cancers, thousands of genetic disorders, obesity, diabetes, microbial infections, biological warfare, SARS and degenerative organ diseases of the lung, liver, kidney and heart. A big question today is the promise of stem cells. Will stem cells one day be good enough to save the sinking Noah’s Ark of human health?
