The publication put out by our local electrical cooperative had a story about a little girl who was born blind and can only be cured by a medical procedure developed in China using stem cells.

I tried to find an online version of this story, but couldn't. Here's a couple of links to the scanned page.

I think it's terrible that she has to go somewhere else for this, and insurance won't even help pay. It's yet another sign of the US falling behind in technology. :(

I've also heard that hip replacements are a heck of a lot better if one has them done in India. They use a better technique there, one that is not approved for use here. :neutral:

This article is distressing on many levels.
