The one thing I took away from the article is they figured out what happened.

This wasn't just some "WTF, the stem cells picked a random growth pattern" issue. Encouraging, at least, to not have to say, "we have no idea why this happened, and we have no control over it."

How the fark is that even LEGAL!?

Especially since Stem Cells, while promising as hell, are still being evaluated and have a great risk for causing harm?!

Damnit, people like this are going to ultimately make large chunks of the public go "OH NOES! STEM CELLS IS TEH TOO DANGEROUS!" and ruin it for the rest of us.

/Same damn reason I get pissed when I see crap like "Underpants! Now infused with COLLOIDAL SILVER NANOPARTICLES TO FIGHT BACTERIA!" etc etc.
//NO! BAD COMPANY. BAD! Either you are lying, or you are being *incredibly* irresponsible with emerging technology. STOP IT.

This sounds like a science breakthrough to me - now we know how to grow new bones.
