  • Michael J. Fox is finally curbing his embryonic stem cell enthusiasm while lamely trying to cover his rear. He says:

    It’s not so much that [stem cell research has] diminished in its prospects for breakthroughs as much as it’s the other avenues of research have grown and multiplied and become as much or more promising. So, an answer may come from stem cell research but it’s more than likely to come from another area.

    During the interview, Fox Foundation co-founder Deborah Brooks then mentions some of the problems with putting embryonic stem cells into the brains of people with Parkinson’s. You know, the same problems pro-life people have been noting for years and the same problems that Dr. Oz told Fox about on Oprah around 3 years ago.
