Stem Cell Awareness

My mom told me that she still kept my dried umbilical cord stump. She said that even if it has dried, it still contains vital stems cells that can be harvested and preserved. I am not sure whether it is true or not, but now you can preserve your newborn’s umbilical cord blood stem cells in a cord blood bank.

A study by the U.S. Census Bureau (2005) shows that August is the month with the highest number of births recorded in the United States. In fact, a new birth occurs every 7 seconds in this country. With the growing number of babies born in just August alone, it is imperative that parents-to-be, know about the importance of umbilical cord blood banking. Cord blood contains vital stems cells that can be harvested and preserved. These stem cells can be used to treat 70 diseases, including leukemia, anemia, lymphoma, diabetes and cerebral palsy. Parents need to be informed about the emerging new discoveries happening in stem cell research today.
