A Rather New Info

While surfing the net a while ago, I chanced to see this site about cord blood banking services. It really caught my interest because it never occurred to me that a newborn's umbilical cord blood can be preserved and used to treat many diseases. This was really new to me so I read on.

According to this cord blood banking site, the umbilical cord blood’s stem cells can be used against over 70 diseases and have been actually used for about 8,000 transplants around the world. Wow! Imagine that. Why didn’t I learn about this before? I could have preserved my baby’s umbilical cord blood for such medical purpose. Now that I have learned about this through this site, I could consider the idea next time.

Is this cord blood bank information new to you as well? Why not check this site to learn more? Now, let me continue reading further about this topic. I’m really curious about this.
