Mark Twain Nailed What Regen Med Has Become Back at the Turn of the 20th Century!
Twain is one of my favorite historical figures and most likely the funniest serious author that ever lived. I often remark how hard it is to undo a lie than it is to lie in the first place. For example, the simple assertion that someone is being injected with millions of live and healthy stem cells from an umbilical cord is easy enough to make. Educating someone why that’s a lie takes time, energy, and resources. Hence this quote sums up what we see in regenerative medicine today. Countless examples of people being fooled because it takes effort to educate them on how they were fooled. That’s one of the reasons you and your friends and loved ones read this blog because we take the time to separate fact from fiction! Kind of like Snopes for regenerative medicine!
Just FYI, the above is a common paraphrase of the actual quote which is, “How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and how hard it is to undo that work again!” – Autobiographical dictation, 2 December 1906. Published in Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 2 (University of California Press, 2013)
