Blood From Our Umbilical Cords

I just learned that the blood from a baby's umbilical cord has effectively treated a number of genetic diseases that affects the blood and immune system, cancer and leukemia.

The stem cells from the blood of an umbilical cord will remain useful for as long as 21 years if stored in deep freeze.

Come to think of it, if there is a blood bank for blood, sperm bank for sperms, there is also a stem cell bank for storing cord blood.

Ain’t that cool?
