Why are resources being spent on embryonic stem cell research when adult stem cell research has been more successful resulting in actual treatment of diseases. Progress has been slow, in part due to resources being spent using embryos to no successful end. Please focus on adult stem cell research which has results with cancer and Crohn's disease.

I agree with C Rodgers. We should focus more on adult stem cell research instead of embryonic stem cell research. When it is sill considered as illegal, why waste time & money on it. Adult stem cell therapy is the future, so why not spend all the resources on it?
