Abstract Fetal stem cell treatment has demonstrated near miraculous potential but many patients are forced to seek therapy abroad. This program investigates the religious and regulatory roadblocks hindering its market approval. Filmmaker Eric Merola travels to Kiev, Ukraine, to undergo a three day personalized anti-aging fetal stem cell program. EmCell, a clinic founded by Dr. Alexey Karpenko, has had 70% success rates in treating patients with chronic and degenerative diseases, from diabetes to autism to multiple sclerosis.
