Meet Lorraine Giannotti. Listening to the way she talks, you would decide that she’s a sweet teenager girl – delicate like how a child would tell a story. Yeah, she sounds sweet, but she’s 51 in that photo. That shocked me as well!
She had a stemcell facelift, and she attributes that for clearing away the stresses that bagged her face. I guess we won’t see that face for long.
Stemcell has been clacking some news the previous years. Scientists will extract cells from an embryo, which is undifferentiated yet. Meaning, those cells can potentially turn into brain cells, organ linings, skin dermis or any other. In essence, if you inject stemcells to a blind person’s eyes, it may rebuild the dead cells needed for sight. It may also repair heart tendons, or improve immune system. It could be anything your body needed.
The promise is a heap of a deal, but these scientists will have to extract cells from an emerging life, thus killing a chance of living. Of course, Catholic Church will go nuts if they extract it from human life. I would go nuts too. To lessen the crime, they resort to animal embryo, mostly from sheep.
That’s the battle – kill one life to save another. This is also another validation that human beings are dominant among any other beings on earth, but does dominance grant us the power to exploit other life forms?
Now, stemcell slipped to cosmetics. If it is pasted or injected to your face, it’ll regenerate fresh and young skin cells, thus making you look younger. That’s another subject for debate. Should we just accept aging, or should we welcome the aid of breakthrough technologies?
Are we the same person afterwards?
Lorraine said that she doesn’t intend to change who she is but to enhance the person that she was. There’s no reformation of nose or thickening of lips; only the disruption of the natural turnover of life.
How long do you wish to stay and look young?
