 'Stem cells restore feeling to paralysed patients'

Scientists [Brazil] claim to have been successful in restoring feeling 
to patients who had been paralysed for two years or more by harvesting 
their stem cells and then putting them back into the body.

Maybe the future shock (I totally agree with Scott) that is pushing 
western governments to outlaw high tech will soon be overtaken by the 
realization that they have economic competitors that have no compunction 
against such research into high tech medicine.

A team from the University of San Paulo in Brazil, led by Tarciscio 
Barros, said after treatment 12 out of 30 patients responded to 
electrical stimulation of their paralysed limbs.

Signature Memetic Virus--The worst enemy of those who now or will need medical 
care is the uninformed politician or moral fanatic who proscribe what doctors 
are allowed to prescribe and research, with the consent of their patients. Those
who understand this are strongly encouraged to modify this to fit their 
personality, and add this to their signature file, and organize to recover our 
freedom from Big Brother. For those who wait until they are sick, it will be too
late. Those who suffer from diseases which might have been cured by advanced 
medical research or schedule 1 drugs banned by Big Brother, have the right to 
hold accountable those who sat on their hands or worse, deferred their 
responsibility for personal and humanity's survival to unseen mystical agents, 
while they remained ill and dying.
