President Obama: please stop the FDA’s assertion that the use of our body’s own stem cells (AASC therapies) is a “biological drug” and thereby subject to FDA regulation. Allow us to use our own stem cells to heal our bodies of chronic illnesses and injuries. AASC therapies offer a less expensive, comparatively safe, and more effective outcome for many diseases than do conventional medical treatments. Other countries are perfecting cures for cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, kidney diseases and many other chronic conditions. FDA control of a person’s own stem cells stifles medical progress and threatens the lives of those dying from curable illnesses.
