Chinese rushing into stem cell treatments

This sounds like a somewhat scary combination of hyper-advanced western medicine and laying-on-of-hands faith-healing.

The long-term impact of the surgery remains unknown, but that does not bother patients who would otherwise have only a few years to live, nor does it bother those like Golden who are willing to try anything to get out of a wheelchair. "People like me and the others in this hospital are willing to risk everything, even our lives. I'll be a guinea pig. Some hope is better than none."
