    Charadi- Sci. fraud infant formula/herbal, E. Holmes- blood, J Salk- ALS/stem cell and the list just keeps growing and growing. USA's security is being bled from the inside out, it is not just China or Russia, our own allies have done a lot more damage. Drop the US and its people to its knees at all cost by using its own people with socialist and communist ideology.

    Kind of funny what stem cells have been able to accomplish since this aired. Definitely isn't a cure for ALS, or cancer, but it's doing some incredible things these days. When this was aired CBS stated "stem cells have no medical use". I wonder what they would say now. However, I hope this man repents for his sins before he dies. He surely needs a savior.

    Please people...know this research "self-stem" inderline the word "SELF" Stem Cell is turning outstanding results. BUT each pt is different no one can tell a Self-Stem cell where to go or what to do. The body does that.

    I really think the interviewer should have asked for a list for people who are cured and research them rather than have a lot of people who dont even know the particular treatment discredit it.
    I would ask for name several people who have history of a disease who are cured using the cure.

    I HOPE SOMEONE AT 60 MINUTES READS THIS. You could have taken a moment to thank those gentlemen ON CAMERA for the help they provided right after you provided an update about their health. Every person needs to feel appreciated and when you're having everything taken from you with chronic illness, appreciation falls precipitously. Think through your actions; walk a mile is the shoes of people you USE to get your stories.

    The word Quack was used to refer to allopathic doctors (aka mainstream medicine) who would prescribe mercury (aka quicksilver, quack) treat people. They told people they had to get sick before they got better. Kinda like...uh...chemo.

    My wife's cousin-in-law just passed away from ALS a little over 4 years from diagnosis. He was bed ridden, unable to move except for shrugging his shoulders, and on a ventilator for 3 of those years. Pure torture as he couldn't even scratch an itch on his nose. Horrible.

    Funny story. If this story is true, the NFL and the NBA have been caught in a serious lie. Some of their most prominent athletes have been successfully treated after career ending injuries. Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant both had stem cell therapy. I'm beginning to think that those injuries were a lie

      Leave Mealone thank you for replying - very interesting- I happen to be a medic doing integrated medicine - which is the usual hard core normal stuff but using any other complementary type thing I can that I can justify research and experience wise ( like acupuncture etc) - genuinely interested. Would never consider getting into it myself as I see that as hospital only stuff- at least
      In uk where I’m based .
      Such a sad program tho for those guys and such a pair of gits ripping them off. Greetings and blessings from🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

      @No Good Boyo My friend's child had cancer. which one I would have ask, but after crying out for help got M&S the retailer to stump up for treatment. How it was described to me is that she died and then came back to life with no knowledge of her previous condition. Weird I know. She is now eighteen and slight, but strong. Works long hours. That is what I know. I will get some more details

    God is merciful beyond measure, there is no sin so vile that it can not be forgiven by God. But do not pretend God allows sin or licenses liars and deceivers, that can never happen. Humble people who repent sincerely from their heart can beg God to forgive them.

    My sister and I have the same problems in our spines, and we have tried everything but back surgery. She told me that there was a new thing going around called stem cell treatment. She said she went and got one treatment and that she had to pay up front to have it done because her insurance wouldn't pay for it. Later on I asked how it was going and she just looked at me and said " I feel like I've been ripped off" It didn't work. later in that year she had back surgery. She still has problems with her spine and I see her getting worse every time I visit her. Oh and by the way, I wished she had watched this before she gave up all of her 401K retirement plan money that she could have lived the rest of her life on. Now she is broke and she's in pain everyday, stumped over and takes baby steps. She said, it's too hard to sit too hard to walk and finds it barely hard to lay down. I pray for her and I am sad, not only for her but for me too, because I'm right behind her in my wheelchair. So if there is anyone out there that is reading this, all I ask of you is to pray for us both. And if there is someone that comes along and reads this one day, thank you and God Bless you. With love and peace from Phoenix AZ.
