This just appeared on the Dublin Road in Limerick. Can it be telling the truth? I’m not well up on this but I’ve started to do a little research. It looks like there are two elements of disinformation here. The message about adult stem cell cures is seriously overstated and they must be using a very low threshold for a definition of a treatment. The message about embryonic stem cell research is technically true but the reason for this is that there hasn’t been enough time for treatments to be developed because of the delays imposed by the opposition of the anti-science crowd. Of course here they are setting the bar high for a definition of a treatment.
Come on science geeks – time for you to get researching and blogging a response.
