Human bodies are the product of millions of years of evolution and they are far from perfect. There are lots of things that nature could have done better. Things fail. However, our ancestors lived through the failings and so will we. Or perhaps not.
Developments in science in the form of stem cell therapy mean that damaged organs can now be repaired. Thus avoiding the natural lead to death.
In simple terms, if any organ or part of a human body is infected by disease, the human body will naturally react to defend itself. It will deploy white blood cells and body temperature will increase. If the body fails to destroy the micro-organisms causing the disease then the microbes will produce toxic substances and the infected organ will fail. If this is a major organ then the body will take a big hit.
A failed heart will lead to reduced cardiac output and difficulties in pumping blood through the body. A failed brain can lead to paralysis and the damage can affect other organs. Failed kidneys can lead to the inability to remove potassium from the bloodstream, which in turn can lead to abnormal heart rhythms and potentially sudden death.
Stem cell therapy can fix damaged organs and can therefore prevent a body from failing.
Cell Therapy Ltd is developing regenerative medicines that will save lives. They have an extremely unique approach towards stem cell therapy, in that, they haven’t just found one stem cell to fix all ailments, as have other stem cell companies, but they have actually been successful in pin pointing very rare and potent tissue specific stem cells. This unprecedented class of cells is then engineered into unique disease-specific cellular regenerative medicines whereby each medicine is disease specific. Thus enabling the treatment of different parts of the body with unique and precise treatment.
Science can most definitely overcome the human body’s obsolescence. If stem cell therapy can fix damaged organs rather than simply just prevent them from getting worse, as current medicine can only achieve, then humans can live longer and healthier and quality of life can be improved. Science can indeed stop bodies from failing.
