The author reflects on human embryonic stem cells research in the U.S. He argues that the government's prohibition of stem cells research restricted the availability of therapies for millions of Americans. He highlights the role of nutrients, including vitamin D3, blueberry, green tea and carnosine, in promoting stem cell proliferation.
