Controversial Research Program Wants To Bring Dead Back To Life….Booted By Indian Government
Stem cell research is now one of the most massive undertakings in science. Every human ailment is subject to stem cell research’s attempts to resolve it. Stem cell treatments are considered controversial, to say the least. Stem cell research is taking on ALS and diabetes, to name a couple of potential conquests.
But like any science which might be good intended, there is typically “the bad” waiting just around the corner. Man’s greed for power collection is inevitable. Now scientists want to use stem cell treatments to bring the dead back to life.
A Philadelphia based company named Bioquark is behind the scheme. They believe they can inject stem cell treatments into the spines of those people who have been declared clinically brain dead. The stem cell treatment would be the largest portion of treatment in giving rise to the dead, but not the only one: There would be protein blend infusions and electrical nerve stimulation and laser therapy performed on the brain. Really, a whole slew of radical treatments would attempt to create the science fiction world we’ve always feared.
The proposition is as such: The combined treatments would spawn new neurons and stimulate them to connect with one another. And this would bring the deceased back to life.
“It’s our contention that there’s no single magic bullet for this, so to start with a single magic bullet makes no sense. Hence why we have to take a different approach,” said Ira Pastor, CEO of Bioquark, told Business Insider.
Apparently, however, Bioquark is going to have issues reaching their potential goals. That’s because research in India has shown the massive undertaking would be a difficult accomplishment. The problem is the research was shut down by the Indian government, who oddly doesn’t think its a good idea to revive those of us who have passed on. Imagine that!
But Bioquark intends to move its testing to Latin America, where they hope those governments want mind a potential zombie apocalypse. Bioquark is seeking a research study of 20 people. They will have stem cell injections performed using their own fat and blood. Next will be the spinal injection with a hope that neurons begin to grow on their own and connect. Researchers will monitor EEG stats and hope that its working. I suppose if one of these individuals stands up and starts hacking away at the scientists with a butcher knife, the program will be declared a massive success.
Many scientist are saying the program is crap and unfounded in science. But Bioquark is betting on the basis that similar science shows that brain issues, such as ALS, have benefited from similar undertakings.
Via Business Insider:
Of Bioquark’s full protocol, “it’s not the absolute craziest thing I’ve ever heard, but I think the probability of that working is next to zero,” said Dr. Charles Cox, a pediatric surgeon who has done research with mesenchymal stem cells — the type used in the trial — at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Cox is not involved in Bioquark’s work.
And depending on your religious views or fears of man’s interest in delving into messing around with the dead, this is good or bad news.
