  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "'stem cells' adult embryonic" to get these possible sources:

    (Broken Link Removed)

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
