Yesterday on Oprah Dr. Oz explains to Oprah and Michael J. Fox why embryonic stem cell research is dangerous and won't cure Parkinson's, but Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell research will!
But of course Oprah being uber liberal summarizes Dr. Oz’s argument for adult stem cells with two short paragraphs, hidden 11 pages deep in a 13 page summary of the show found on oprah.com:
“Thanks to recent scientific discoveries, Dr. Oz says stem cells aren’t the only solution. ‘We went to a place we never thought we would go. I can take a little bit of your skin, take those cells and get them to go back in time so they’re like they were when you were first made.’”
“Dr. Oz says these skin cells, which contain your genes and are less prone to cancer, will be the ones that are ultimately used to cure Parkinson’s. ‘I think we’re single digit years away from making a big impact in the lives of [people with] Parkinson’s disease, but also diabetics and heart attack victims,’”
Oprah.com not only avoided quoting Oz as saying “the stem cell debate is dead,” but carefully avoided the words “stem cell” and “embryonic’ when quoting or summarizing his remarks.
Oz did in fact say stem cells were the solution, but instead of backing ESCR, he advocated adult stem cells as the future of medical breakthroughs. (Source)
