Tooth Fairy Beware

I saw this on The Doctors yesterday. Apparently, you can save your baby’s umbilical cord so they can harvest the stem cells for future illnesses in your family. If you didn’t do that at birth, a pulled tooth can also be a source for the precious stem cells. A company called Stem Save has a kit that will let you preserve the tooth, and they’ll store it for you. The plastic surgeon in the show said that fat removed during liposuction also has stem cells.
