Who discovered stem cells is a question worthy of exploration. For several hundred years, researchers have known that the human body comprises trillions of tiny structures. Known as cells, these structures can only be seen at a microscopic level. These cells come in hundreds of variations – 200, to be exact – and serve multitudinous functions within the human body. These functions include pumping blood, digesting food, and ridding our bodies of toxins and waste products, among others.
