Is your quality of life important to you through preventive health

By storing you adult stem cells today, could be your chance for having an incurable debilitating illness that can be prevented through your own adult stem cells. Knowing the advances in medicine through stem cell treatements and therapy now, insurance companies you think would clamor at the idea of a healthy you today is a better you tomorrow.

It's rather maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the first place... and I don't think insurance companies would provide financial support for new organs otherwise.

Remaining healthy is not a guarantee you won't get a debilitating disease where your stem cells could help you by not irradicating the disease but by reversing and slowing down the process as Ive witnesses through stem cell treatments for neurological diseases being done currently like Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease

      Simone's point about maintaining a healthy lifestyle is like the other end of the spectrum for "preventive health". According to Dr. Lim Siow Jin we are not supposed to get sick because "Our body is the best doctor".
