Stem Cells: Types, Treatment and Research

Stem cells can simply be defined as the cell that can produce the same type of cell in the human body. Stem cells research receives the huge media attention. There is huge potential in the development of the stem cells. Occasionally, the news of the discovery of the artificial stem cell reverberates around the globe.

There are innate hidden dangers of the stem cell research. Due to this majority of the government around the world has banned the stem cell research.

Due to the massive control of the stem cell research, there are no precise means to know the sequence of chemical required to develop the specific organ. This requires the massive experiment to have the adequate understanding.

Despite strict regulatory measure by every government around the world stem cell research is constantly gaining height.  Recently, the scientist has announced the successful growth of stem cells in the pig embryo that is the true indication of the advancement of stem cell research.

Major Types of Stem cells

Two types of stem cells are found in organism one is the embryonic stem cell and the other is the adult stem cell. After 4 to 5 days of fertilization, human embryo reaches the blastocyst stage (1). The stem cell is extracted from the inner mass of the blastocysts. An adult stem cell is the somatic stem cell found in children and adult and vital for repair and mention of the body (2).

Totipotent and Pluripotent

This is the jargon often encounter in the Stem cell reading. The totipotent cells are from the morula after the fertilization that is capable of forming any types of deserved cell. Whereas the pluripotent are the cell are from the blastocyst that is capable of forming different cells except for the placenta.


Stem cells are used to generate the loss part of the human body. The most practice treatment is the bone marrow transplant. This the common therapy used for a long time back.

There are a number of people around the world who are waiting for the organ transplant. The demand of the organ transplant is skyrocketing and the waiting time is rising year by year. By using the stem cell new organ can be manufactured at the ease and suffering can be minimized. A stem cell has the innate capacity to fulfill the growing demand.

Various chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease can be the cure for the advancement of the stem cell research.


It is strongly believed that embryo has the innate life and like the mature individual, the embryo has the right to live. Destroying the embryo is the heinous crime as the life originates from the embryo. Opponents claim that the destroying of the embryo as the criminal act.

Father of Communism Karl Marx or Charles Darwin

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Aghori Baba Living with the Dead Human Body

Aghori Baba is the most fearsome Baba of all Hindu sects. There are less than fifty Aghori Baba in India as well as Nepal due to their arduous and martinet lifestyle. Both the India and Nepal contain more than eighty percent of the Hindu population, which cremate the dead body. Aghori Baba Lives near the cremation ground and did the ritual in Pyre. Due to their practice of cannibalism, this Hindu sect is given the keen interest by westerners. 

This sect claims that by following the martinet lifestyle they are able to liberate themselves from the natural cycle of birth and death. Due to the excessive indulgence with alcohol and marijuana cigarette, they behave abnormally. True Aghori Baba remains active during the night and remains idle during the day. Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.
The origin of Aghori Sects seems hazy. The scent of evidence suggests that a recluse of medieval Kashmir might have inducted this sect. Due to the varied of s…

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
