Comment Re:Adult vs. Embryonic stem cells... ? (Score 1) 180

Ok, I can see why embryonic stem cells would be easier to research. Do they use stem cells in placentas? If not, why not? Are they available. If there are stem cells in a placenta, which I am pretty sure there are, why are they just thrown away? It seems like a huge waste of resources.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
