Scientists flag stem-cell treatment tourism dangers

I don't think I would do this, but if I was in the situation where this was my only hope would I change me mind? I dunno.

The rise of stem-cell tourism by celebrities such as Howe, as well as by others who are desperate for a cure, can put people in danger from unsafe treatments, say some Canadian researchers. It can also drain bank accounts, raise unrealistic expectations and even undermine the potential of stem cells to one day treat everything from immune diseases and cancer to heart attacks.
