[IP] Fw: stem cell breakthrough



The New York Times on the WebThis was sent to me by a local family.  =
Thought it might interest the group....

Mom to Rachel and Blossom, 3 1/2, pumping 4+ weeks

Hello to all!
     I don't know if any of you have access to the New York Times this
morning, if not go to NYTimes.com and register (its free).  There is a
front page article about a break through in stem cell research here in
the USA at the NIH (National Institute of Health).  They have
successfully caused a stem cell from mice to replicate the pancreas and
produce insulin.  If anybody can write their congressperson to urge them
to help President Bush to allow human research on discarded stem cells,
we could be that much closer to a cure.  Very Exciting.
Talk to you all soon.
