If Adult (Repair) stem cells are the forest…

and Embryonic stem cells are the trees…

then why can’t scientists realize that adult stem cells are treating patients now and embryonic stem cells won’t treat patients for 10-30 years?

Because, they “can’t see the forest for the trees”

<Idiomatic English Glossary – C>

Definition: overly concerned with detail; not understanding the whole situation

Explanation: Used when expressing that a person is focusing too much on specific problems and is missing the point

Examples: I’m afraid you can’t see the forest for the trees. – He often can’t see the forest for the trees and needs to have the most relevant points explained to him.

What are the most relevant points?

Adult (Repair) stem cells are treating people Now.

Adult (Repair) stem cells are treating people Safely.

Adult (Repair) stem cells are treating people Effectively.
