In an ideal society, viruses and diseases would be non-existent. What if this could be possible? What if we were able to do something about the diseases that take over our loved ones? Embryonic stem cell research has the potential to cure fatal diseases and terminal illnesses. This method may seem unethical, but its positives outweigh its negatives. Through research and funding we will be able to achieve limitless results and even the key to unlocking such an ideal society. Stem cell constitute an important class of cells in the body, their process of self renewal has a great potential for tissue repair. More and more institutions are requesting states to fund this research. Despite the positive possibilities in stem cell research some say that this research is unethical due to the method through which it is conducted.
How do stem cells work? As shown in the diagram below it is inserted through the vitro fertilized egg and then goes through the blastocyst stage, from there the inner stem cell mass cultivates and branches off into the necessary areas for recovery, such as blood cells, neural cells and muscle cells.

        This research is an important part of the current medical field because it has vast potential to become one of the strongest and most vital methods in helping treat current “incurable” diseases such as HIV, AIDs, and many others. As of now many are for this research as well as against it, and due to this clash the process of research has slowed down and caused controversy amongst many scientists and politicians. However there has been progress since stem cell research was first introduced back before 1996, showing that the number of citations on stem cells per year was a little under 500 for both the U.S. and the rest of the world, and now a little over ten years later the number has increased for the U.S. to a little under thirty-five hundred citations, and a little under two thousand citations for the rest of the world per year.
