Stem Cells wonder

Every organ in our body is made up of tissues and every tissue is made up of cells. Cells are the basic building blocks of our body. In recent times stem cells have gained in popularity and almost every medical journal you pick up will contain an article on stem cells. Stem cells are special type of cells which have the ability to regenerate or renew themselves through replication or proliferation and they are present in many multicellular organisms. This multiplicative property of stem cells can be utilized in repairing tissues in our body. Stem cells are termed as unspecialized but they can be used to generate specialized cells that perform specific functions in our body. Stem cell therapy will revolutionize human treatment in the near future. The behavior of stem cells is under research and scientists are curious to analyze their properties. In a landmark research stem cells are also believed to generate cardiac muscles that can cure heart related illness. Stem cell lines are cell cultures nurtured in a laboratory atmosphere. There are certain controversies shadowing stem cell research because it involves destruction of embryos.
