Breakthrough stem cell research: Creating embryonic stem cells without using embryos

Scientists have found a new way to create stem cells. The new procedure, known as known as stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency or STAP, is quite revolutionary, as the main aspect is exposing the mature adult cells to various stressful environments including trauma, a low oxygen environments and an acidic environment to reprogram them to becoming embryonic stem cells.
