    When trying to clarify, do so correctly the first time, not the third.


    Here is an article quoting him:

    http://www.news.com.au/technology/sc...-1226670516113
    "It's the first time in human history that we can see the regeneration of the spinal cord," Dr Young said.


    Here is Dr. Young in person. Note Oddity, that he says "regeneration" and also says no motor return on function.

    "it was very disappointing, neither subject that showed really incredible regeneration, apparently in the spinal cord, had any motor return."
    – 11:06

    I don't give a s^*t between "regenerate" or "growth". That's not my point. My point is that Dr. Young believes he has caused growth of spinal cord axons, long distances I may add, using his therapy. So Dr. Murray Blackmore should stop looking for genes that may stimulate growth, and start looking at how to refine Umbilical Cord Blood cells to make them grow better/longer. Maybe add some new concoctions. Why recreate the wheel?! Its crazy. We can be out of these chairs. Stop spending $$$ on trying to get axon growth in petri dishes or rats. We have it already in humans! UCB + lithium.

    Fair enough.

    If the metabolic theory of cancer is true studying cancer genes may not help much finding a therapy to reverse SCI:

    "If you have 10 people in the room with, say, pancreatic cancer and you sequence each of their tumors, what you'll find is there are a couple of commonly mutated genes, but from one patient to the next, there not much of a pattern. It's very random.
    You'll even find some cases with one single driving mutation. You cannot explain that through a genetic origin of cancer, through the somatic mutation theory. You'll even find tumors with zero mutations."

    Fortunately, that would only be true when you study the theory of those already listed on the Quackwatch... http://www.quackwatch.org/11Ind/mercola.html

    I was just wondering if this theory should be considered at least a bit or not, so do you think is totally worthless just because Dr. Mercola wrote about it or you also have other facts?

    For the record I fully support the work of Murray Blackmore and others working in the same area.

    How so and who are these "others" are working in the same area that you fully support?
