the beneficial effects of using ADULT stemcells and knowledge among the wider community will depend partly on upfront ackowledgement that it is ADULT stemcells being used, as many years of publicity have led the public to believe that embryonic stemcells are the panacea ; scientists must now undo the damage that this misleading publicity has caused. Honesty and scientific discipline are paramount and untruths must be undone.Only then will the funding sources be persuaded to recognise that money must be redirected to adult stemcell research and wasted years be recovered. Tragically those like Christopher Reeves are no longer around to benefit and undo the damage he and so many others did when they condemned opposition to embryonic stemcell research.Journalists of the Daily Telegraph for one example did huge damage by their writings and that has in no way been made up for that since their error has been recognised in a small degree .
