...for most of the public is whether embryonic, or other pluripotent, stem cells are useful for any therapies.  According to the NIH, the answer is "not yet."  And that was in 2014, so presumably the tests they were referring to in that article have completed and were not successful.  

It is as if Someone is telling the NIH, if they would only listen, that they'll do better simply taking a free will donation from the guts of millions of Americans--belly fat is evidently a rich source of adult stem cells, and something which most Americans would be glad to eliminate for science or any other reason.  

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
