Guest Editorial by Robert Price
After his stroke in 2014, Gordie Howe, the hockey legend who died in June at the age of 88, flew to Mexico to have himself injected with stem cells. According to media reports, Howe’s health improved enough following the injections for him to make a public appearance.
Howe is one of the more notable people who sought stem cell treatment outside Canada. To read reports about medical tourism, one might assume the experimental treatments happening in other parts of the world are the salvation the sick and dying hope for. We might have similar luck dipping a toe into holy water. Both are faith healing.
