Stem Cells, Incontinence, and Jim Sensenbrenner

At least one Republican just got another reason to dislike stem cell research -- (added for James, in the interest of blogging harmony) this time the kind on adult stem cells.

The Journal-Sentinel is reporting today that researchers have discovered stem cells can cure adult incontinence. In a recent study, patients who were injected with stem cells from their own muscle tissue no longer needed to wear protective pads one year after treatment.

This doesn't bode well for the adult diaper industry, which is dominated by the brand Depend.

Depend is manufactured by Kimberly-Clark, whose heir is our very own Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner.

Something tells me that Sensenbrenner -- who recently reported personal holdings of nearly $11 million without a penny of debt -- won't be bothered much by the news.

Please see the latest update. I added a note about you stating where the stem cells came from.
