Stem cells carry high hopes to help treat and possibly cure a myriad of diseases. However, the use of stem cells is a subject of great debate do to the fact that the best source for stem cells for use in this type of research is from human embryos.

Reuters reports that researchers from California-based Novocell Inc. recently used human embryonic stem cells to treat diabetes in mice. The stem cells were implanted into mice and were turned into “nearly” normal insulin-producing cells in the mice.
