Scientists hope the fat taken from flabby thighs and stomachs could one day be used to save lives and to protect from a host of conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Stem cells have already been used to treat burns and wounds, to repair cartilage in osteoarthritic joints, and more controversially, in breast enlargement surgery. Now, those undergoing liposuction to shed the pounds are being offered the chance to store their own stem cells, extracted from their adipose tissue. While the cells can be used to treat a limited number of ailments, and are currently being used in breast surgery trials, customers are more likely to be swayed by the hope that future medical breakthroughs mean one day, the cells could save their life.
