Stem cells are cells that haven’t differentiated yet. They have the ability to divide and make an indefinite number of copies of themselves. Other cells in the body can only replicate a limited number of times before they begin to break down. When a stem cell divides, it can either remain a stem cell or turn into a differentiated cell, such as a muscle cell or a red blood cell.

For example, red blood cells are specifically designed to carry oxygen through the blood.

Here are some pros:
1.Adult stem cells can be reprogrammed and are less likely to be rejected when used in transplants.
2.Embryonic stem cells can grow for at least a year in some cases, especially when established protocols are used. These cells can also be used to generate more cell
