No intention of “going political” here on my chatty diabetes blog, but in the name of Diabetes Advocacy, I can’t let this one pass! President Bush has threatened to veto a bill expanding public funding for embryonic stem cell research. Existing stem cells lines are simply not sufficient to take this revolutionary research to the next level — which is very likely a place where CURES to many degenerative diseases like diabetes will be created.
Bush’s short-sited thinking just sucks. The ADA, JDRF, and Diabetes Research Institute agree. Please see Dr. Bill Quick’s diabetes.blog.com today for all the details.
