Embryonic stem cell effort creates backlash

Pursue adult cell research

If other states are moving into embryonic stem cell research because they "smell jobs", they should dig deeper into the California experience ("Michigan fights for stem cell cash", Oct 22). Now proponents are back-pedaling on their promises of cures, changing their focus from developing therapies to basic research on the causes of diseases.

Michigan has no need for the "bait and switch" tactics. The smart money and researchers are pursuing adult stem cell research.
