African Americans, Hispanics most at risk in stem cell- umbilical cord blood debate
Proven uses for:
Embryonic Stem cells: 0
Cord Blood Stem Cells: Helps fight 70 diseases
Few people realize there is a lack of cord blood resources for African American and
Hispanics. Those of mixed ethnicity face the biggest danger of not
getting the crucial stem cells from cord blood because they are dangerously
represented in the National Registry.
This is a non profit effort of Save the Cord Foundation which is NOT
affiliated with any registry, blood bank- only two women who are working to save lives
through valuable cord blood that has proven to help fight 70 diseases.
