What you'll learn about Store-A-Tooth
Aside from offering discounts at the event, you'll learn about Stem Cells and how they save lives.
For decades, doctors have harnessed the unique ability of stem cells to treat leukemia and genetic blood diseases. But now, researchers are discovering that these cells have the power to heal, to fight disease, and to regenerate damaged or aging tissue throughout the body. To fully understand why they hold the potential to change your child’s medical future, get to know more about stem cells.
STEM CELL INTRO
Ordinary cells in your body replicate to make new cells of the same type - blood cells make more blood cells, skin cells make more skins cells and so on. However, there is another type of cell, called a stem cell. These are nature’s “master” cells, which can be “programmed” to regenerate a wide variety of cells and tissues.
Because stem cells can regenerate other types of body cells and tissues, stem cells have the ability to aid in healing. This is why scientists and doctors are so excited about the growing role of stem cells to treat disease, injury, and the deterioration of tissue due to aging. Amazingly, after our birth and into adulthood, we keep a store of these stem cells in certain parts of our body.
YOUNGER IS BETTER
The younger the stem cell, the more potent the stem cell. Freezing cells in a youthful state preserves their future ability to generate replacement tissue and heal the body. Younger cells divide more frequently, grow faster, and can turn into a greater variety of cell types. Why do you think a seven year old heals so much faster than a seventy year old?
All of these attributes make stem cells the cornerstone of the emerging field of treatments and therapies called Regenerative Medicine.
