The Healing Cell: How the Greatest Revolution in Medical History Is Changing Your Life – New Adult Stem Cell Book
The Stem for Life Foundation is excited to announce the imminent release of Our Stem Cells: The Mystery of Life and Secrets of Healing, written by Dr. Robin L Smith (President and Trustee of Stem for Life Foundation), Msgr. Tomasz Trafny (Head of Science and Faith Department, Pontifical Council for Culture of the Vatican), and Dr. Max Gomez (Trustee of Stem for Life Foundation).
The book is the result of a historic collaboration between The Vatican’s Pontifical Council (via its charitable foundation STOQ) and the Stem for Life Foundation. It includes a special address by His Holiness Benedict XVI, urging increased support and awareness for advancements in adult stem cell research in order to alleviate human suffering.
The book focuses on concepts discussed at the First International Vatican Adult Stem Cell Conference (2011) and presents the reader with an engaging, comprehensive overview of adult stem cells and their vital role in a future of regenerative medicine. In powerful, accessible language the book showcases a wide array of emerging adult stem cell breakthroughs, including their ability to repair damaged hearts and organs, restore sight, kill cancer, cure diabetes, heal burns and stop the march of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
“In addition to making the science easy to understand, we filled the book with here-and-now case studies on how adult stem cell therapies are already helping real people suffering needlessly from deadly and debilitating diseases and medical conditions. Not only does the book speak to the success of our historic partnership with The Vatican, but it sets the stage for our next great event.”
- Dr. Robin L. Smith, co-author
“This book promotes a powerful dialogue between scientific and religious communities. This dialogue must find its expression within the important framework of searching for truth and being guided by the highest ethical values. We hope this book will help educate people throughout the world regarding the importance of ethical scientific research and help them understand they do not need to choose between their faith and science; but in fact, the two can work together to profoundly improve humanity.”
- Monsignor Tomasz Trafny, co-author
On June 27, 2012 Monsignor Tomasz Trafny joined Dr. Robin Smith to present the first copy of Our Stem Cells: The Mystery of Life and Secrets of Healing to The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
