Cryo-Save national manager Odette Shefermann discusses Stem Cell Storage.

Stem cells are considered to be the basic building blocks of our bodies and have the potential to become almost any other cell in the body making stem cell therapies the way of the future. Stem cell therapies and treatments are arguably the fastest growing sector in the medical industry today. With us today to talk about this phenomenon and how it can benefit our lives  is Odette Shefermann of Cryo-Save South Africa.

Stem cells are non-specialized cells which can develop into other cells such as blood-, brain-, tissue- or muscle cells. There is potential for the research to assist with cures for several diseases such as alzheimers, Parkinson's disease and even cancer. There have been criticisms from several groups stating that stem cell research is "humans trying to play God".
