Parts for the Heart?
There are service departments with parts to fix everything from watches to cars. What about parts for human hearts? Japanese medical researchers have performed the first transplant of lab-grown human heart cells. Adult stem cells were induced to become heart cells growing on biodegradable sheets. The sheets are attached to an ailing heart with the goal that healthy cells will replace the defective ones. If the technique works, it would be a major breakthrough to reduce reliance on whole-organ transplants. Unlike embryonic stem cells, the use of adult stem cells does not require the destruction of a human life and is consistent with God’s intent that we exercise dominion over His creation (Genesis 1:28).
