It looks like there's another study which intends to promote the idea that the United States is falling behind in embryonic stem cell research. The only problem is the U.S. does more embryonic stem cell research than any other nation so the author Aaron Levine had to come up with another comparison.
He found that while the United States produces far more research in the field than any other single country, when one compares the amount of human embryonic stem cell research to other forms of research in molecular biology and genetics, the U.S. falls behind.
So while the U.S. leads other nations in embryonic stem cell research, embryonic stem cell research has a smaller share of the American research pie than molecular biology and genetics compared to other nations who are producing less embryonic stem cell research. And this is a problem for embryonic stem cell research proponents because???? Will they not be happy until research which hasn't helped a single patient is the most prevalent research in the U.S.?
