Tomorrow night on ABC1 at 8.30pm returns the second series of the TV documentary Head First. The first of the five-episode series, Stem Cell Highway, covers the growing international trend of stem-cell tourism, people traveling overseas for controversial, expensive and sometimes unproven or untested treatments. The desire to try absolutely everything to recover from a catastrophic accident is understandable, but do these procedures work, are they safe, or are they just a con?
Stem Cell Highway is on ABC1 on Wednesday July 16 at 8.30pm and repeated on ABC2 on Monday July 21 at 9.30pm.
