All About Storing Umbilical Cord Blood
Blood is being extracted from the umbilical cord at birth through a particular procedure, and afterwards stored.

Meanwhile, there will as well be an increased maternal DNA risk that contaminates the cord blood during labour. Stem cells as a result of its metamorphosing attributes can as well aid the repairs of blood vessel, organ, and tissues. These same cells can also be found in any of baby teeth, bone marrow, the fetal tissues, circulating blood, and so on in addition to the umbilical cords. The fact is, all the parts of the human body contain stem cells with the just clause that not all has concentrations that is rich enough for a medical harvest.
