  • Cells are the Smallest Unit of Life

    Cells are the smallest unit of life, the very building block of life, and together make us and all other multicellular organism what we are. Adult cells are usually specialized for specific function (i.e. cartilage, acid secretion in the stomache, etc). However, some cells remain less specialized and differentiated, called stem cells. Stem cells play a primary role in the healing process, and are capable of dividing into a wide variety of cell types. While stem cells previously were collected using aspiration of bone marrow, but recently they have been found in very high numbers in fat, which is much easier to collect and more abundant. The ease of obtaining adult stem cells from fat currently makes liposuction the preferred method for collection, and avoids the risk and controversy of embryonic stem cell use.
