On the side of my blog I have a picture of Dr. Denise Faustman. If you click on the link, it takes you to her web page that is to fund raise for a cure for type one diabetes.
Here is a video that explains the type of research Dr. Faustman is doing:
Since seeing this video, I am convinced that with enough support behind her, Dr. Faustman is going to be the one to find a cure for us and for others with autoimmune diseases. The reason I think this treatment will work is because it is targeting the bad white blood cells which attack the insulin producing islets and stop the islets from reproducing. Since this is the primary cause of type one diabetes, it is what we need to reverse in the body.
I have always been against embryonic stem cell research. This isn't just because it is the killing of another soul, but because it just hasn't shown any promise at all. Since seeing Dr. Faustmans explanation of what happens with her treatment, I know that this is where we need to look for a cure. Any cell that produces some islets isn't solving the problem of this bad white blood cell which is still present in anyone with any autoimmune disease.
