Stem Cells

Every organ and tissue in our body grew out of a cluster of stem cells early in development. A stem cell differs from every other cell in the body in its ability to renew itself. It can divide into many more just like it. Stem cells can repair and replace tissue in the human body. In other words, stem cells have the power to heal.
