    :: Spoiler Alert ::

    these books are just to entertain and give Teacher supplementary income , such as this author/s.
    This is not for those who really interested in knowing what is going in the medical world Why there is on cure despite $100 blns on research and millions of man hours expended.

    Today medical books such as this should not be confused with science papers.
    Those who want to understand really what is going in stem cell research must look up fo work by Doctor and surgeon who are practitioners.
    Also many journal on stem cells, (open journals) also are just time wasters. they ar writing only to get funding from science academy. For example here in india there are researchers/doctors writing on every topic in stelm cell, robotic, nuclear medicine. but the fact is in India e they cant even do organ transplant. people hvae to go to singapore. likewise for many treatments doctors have to go overseas for regular training.
    Similarly I have seen 100s of such books like this. Why there is a famous 'dummies' series also on anything that evne brainiest scientist cnat understand. . 3d printing.
    it is obvious these books are for making money.
    that is just the limit.
    If the idea is about knowing stem cell or medical research and fraud, then you might as well watch movies such as outbreak, Coma( michael douglas) . Those have some truth and will explain better about virus and pathogens, immunity , morphing of bacteria, mutations.

    Also understand about radiation from mustard gas used in world war 1,2 and Bush's fmaily war in iraq, you will know how people get cancer due to radiation. All such truth books like ths wont explain. AIS is it man made? yes.
