I haven't done Biology in a long time but Embryonic stem cells can be use to create anything such as
(a) Blood tissues
(b) Organs like hearts and livers
(c) Can treat diseases like Diabetes
(d) Can fix up neurological conditions like Alzheimer
but they are an ethical issue because of the fact that you are using dead babies to make it

Bone marrow stem cells are less advantageous as embryonic but they can make
(a) healthy blood cells mainly used to treat leukaemia
They also are not an ethical issue because consent is taken from the donater.
