Also this has nothing to do with embryonic stem cells so there should be no religious conflict. They just use the adult stem cells from the marrow of the donor.
Have you heard of people curing HIV with hydrogen peroxide treatment? Apparently, if you get high quality H202 and dilute it, and drink it regularly, it will cure many things for you(you would also take vitamin C for it's antioxidant properties to negate too much oxidation from the peroxide I guess). It oxidizes like crazy in your body, which is essentially what your white blood cells do when fighting off infections...other people think it's dangerous though.
Rumor has it that Magic was cured with this "miracle water". There is also this natural spring/well/body of water in France that has "cured" many people through out the ages, and scientists found out that the water has a high amount of H202 in it...
