Cells Are the New Cure: The Cutting-Edge Medical Breakthroughs That Are Transforming Our Health by Robin L. Smith, M.D. and Max Gomez, Ph.D.

Cells are the New Cure

By UncategorizedNo Comments

The future of medicine is happening now. Revolutionary new science is providing cures that were considered science fiction five years ago – and not with pills, surgery or radiation– but with human cells.


Promising treatments now in more than 35,000 clinical trials could have dramatic impacts on cancer, autoimmune diseases, organ replacement, heart disease, and even aging itself. These treatments, which are saving the lives of patients in the trials, will soon be rolled to the medical community at large.


The key to these breakthroughs is the use of living cells as medicine instead of traditional drugs. Research has found that our bodies are virtual treasure troves of adult cells that act as agents of remarkable healing and repair. These cells have been called adult stem cells because they resemble embryonic cells in their ability to transform into many other cell types but without the ethical and moral concerns of embryonic cells.


Adult cells can reprogram cells to work more efficiently. They can also carry edited genetic code to repair mistakes and deliver targeted therapies, allowing them to address and even cure many diseases affecting children and adults.


The applications of these cellular therapies are broad and growing. Regenerative medicine allows doctors to repair injured and aging tissues and, incredibly, to create artificial body parts and organs in the lab. New technologies make it possible to harness the immune system to fight cancer and reverse autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. We’re also seeing advances to alleviate the effects of strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, and even allergies. CRISPR, a new technology for targeted gene editing, promises to eradicate genetic diseases, allowing us to live longer lives–possibly beyond age 100 in good health.


Cells Are the New Cure takes you on a tour of the most exciting and leading-edge developments in medicine. You’ll meet the doctors performing the lifesaving research and the patients who have survived illnesses that, before today, were considered a death sentence. The content inside these pages could save your life or the life of someone you love.

The Stem for Life Foundation is pleased to announce the release of The Healing Cell: How the Greatest Revolution in Medical History Is Changing Your Life, written by Dr. Robin Smith (President and Trustee of Stem for Life Foundation), Monsignor Tomasz Trafny (Head of Science and Faith Department, Pontifical Council for Culture of the Vatican), and Dr. Max Gomez (Trustee of the Stem for Life Foundation, Health Correspondent for WBCS-TV).


This historic book is collaboration between The Vatican’s Pontifical Council (via its charitable foundation STOQ) and the Stem for Life Foundation. A literary first, it includes a special address by His Holiness Benedict XVI, urging increased support and awareness for advancements in adult stem cell research to alleviate human suffering.


The Healing Cell is the result of the dialogue initiated at the First International Adult Stem Cell Conference (2011) and provides the reader with an engaging, comprehensive overview of adult stem cells and their essential role in the future of regenerative medicine. In compelling prose, the book showcases distinct examples of adult stem cell breakthroughs, including their ability to repair damaged hearts and organs, restore sight, eradicate cancer, cure diabetes, heal burns and stop the onslaught of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.

Pope Benedict XVI presented first edition of The Healing Cell by the authors, Robin L. Smith, M.D., Msgr. Tomasz Trafny, and Max Gomez, Ph.D.

On June 27, 2012, the co-authors of The Healing Cell, Msgr. Tomasz Trafny, Dr. Robin Smith and Dr. Max Gomez presented the first edition of the book to the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
