THE idea of cord blood banking is new to me but it sounds interesting that one can freeze cells to be use later in life to treat a disease. I had no idea Malaysia had such a facility or service to do this. That stem cells have the potential of curing diseases must be good news for individuals who are saddled with a lot of health problems. Because you don’t actually reap the benefits immediately, it’s more like a long-term investment, like a life insurance. But if it can save a life, I suppose it’s a small price to pay. – Chong Wai Leng, 38, writer
