Cord blood stem cell.
Cord blood stem cell banking is supported by the medical community however this is only recommended where there is a family history of certain genetic diseases.
Umbilical cord blood is that blood found in the umbilical cord after the birth of a baby.
Unlike embryonic stem cells, which are causing a lot of controversy, cord blood is very valuable because it contains stem cells and it can generally be used by direct family members without fear of rejection.
Embryonic stem cell research is troubled by controversy and although hundreds of millions of dollars have already been spent on research over the last 12 years, to date we don’t have one single medical benefit we can use.
One of the things you need to know is, stem cells are the reason cord blood is so highly valued. The second thing of importance is, stem cells act as a natural repair system for the body.
They not only replenish specialist cells as they get older and need replacement but also maintain the normal maintenance of the body by supporting organ tissues that have been damaged by infections and illnesses.
The cost of blood banking by the way is approximately $2000 for collection and a further $125 for storage with likely increases as time goes by.
As an alternative to the costly storage of stem cells there has been an amazing breakthrough which has been discovered by an investigative scientist ,Christian Drapeau MSc .
He has found a way to increase our body’s ability to release its own supply of stem cells from our own bone marrow with a natural product.
