la prensa is not exactly Scientific American

these people (la Prensa) have a very stylish publication but they have a chronic case of thinking they're better than everybody else.

It's one of those things that is being investigated and so people have read something about it. I suspect anything that hasn't been put to clinical trials.

The quack I worked for for a while knew that people had heard of RNA and would sell some cow slaughterhouse by-products turned into pills as a "source of RNA." But RNA is in everything we eat, and doesn't go into the blood stream whole from the intestines, anyway. So, the patient, who had some passing exposure with newspaper article on science would hear a familiar word or term associated with science and decide that the doctor should be trusted. They'd rarely know enough more to understand how say, RNA functioned in living tissue,

For people with some forms of bone marrow cancer, stem cell replacement or a bone marrow transplant after chemotherapy is a standard treatment, has been for thirty years. Some other things are promising.

There's one claim of an stem cell cure of AIDS, in Germany. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/06/08/man-cured-of-aids-i-feel-g... Some people are naturally immune to HIV and this person had a stem cell transplant connected to treating bone cancer and appears to have been fortunate.

Unless the procedure used precisely the same sort of mutated stem cells (very rare), then this doesn't work.

Well, at least it was a distraction from the other problematic German.
