What do liposuctionists do with the stuff they suck out? They could be missing an opportunity.

I posted about stem cells just a bit ago, but there's something else from Smith's article I wanted to note: "Cells from human fat have proven to be true adult stem cells that look to be useful in regenerative medicine. Indeed, it appears that 62 percent of human fat cells "could be reprogrammed into turning into at least two other different cell types," according to Duke University researchers."

If this is true, I'm guessing that we'll never have a problem coming up with enough stem cells.
