Singapore Acts as Haven for Stem Cell Research (Good)

Singapore Acts as Haven for Stem Cell Research – New York Times

Thank God somebody is getting the research done.

You can’t buy Wrigley’s Spearmint gum in Singapore. But human embryonic stem cells? That’s a different matter.
Last month a local company, ES Cell International, claimed to be the first company to commercially produce human embryonic stem cell lines in a way that makes them suitable for clinical trials. Researchers can buy vials of stem cells from ES Cell over the Internet for $6,000.

I Wonder if anyone can get a vial of those stem cells?

This is a horrible thought but I hope they don’t become some sort of delicacy somewhere.  Caviar, Chicken Eggs etc etc Rhino Tusk etc etc it could pop up somewhere.  Ugh.
