Morally Pure Stem Cells And An Electronic Nose

Wake up and smell the science, people.

There's always a big problem with stem cells, despite their potential to regrow brains and stuff, because they're harvested from human embryos. That's why the Bush Administration outlawed making them for a while. But if these researchers are right, researchers could harvest stem cells from a cheek swab and sidestep a lot of moral gray areas.
