End of blood shortages

Researchers in Advanced Cell Technology, Massachusetts have found embryonic stem cells can be used to grow tons of red blood cells. These could be a breakthrough in making limitless blood. The dearth of blood in blood banks will evaporate and we can even find firms manufacturing blood in future. The most desirable Blood type to generate is O negative, because it is universal donor. Doctors and researchers are hoping that in future we can make organs for transplantation from stem cells. Unfortunately the immune system response adversely to such transplants and it is not feasible for now.

Stem cell cultivation for blood cells is fascinating enough to read. If you have any further suggestions or know any new development please let me know
