Cure For Most Common Cause Of Blindness?

If you were to listen to some folks, embryonic stems cell therapy is immoral and to top it off there has yet to be any usable medical breakthroughs from the research anyways.
BRITISH scientists have developed the world’s first stem cell therapy to cure the most common cause of blindness. Surgeons predict it will become a routine, one-hour procedure that will be generally available in six or seven years’ time.

The treatment involves replacing a layer of degenerated cells with new ones created from embryonic stem cells. It was pioneered by scientists and surgeons from the Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London and Moorfields eye hospital.

Okay well maybe there is that...
