Stem cells are the foundation cells for every cell, organ, and tissue in the body. Because of this bio-regenerative capacity, stem cells are promising therapies for diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, Parkinson's, type-1 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and rheumatoid arthritis. However, some types of stem cells have ethical concerns and legal complications that make stem cell research a controversial topic. We conclude that many obstacles must be overcome before the potential uses of stem cells may be realized.
