We are seeing a flood of professional athletes getting stem cell treatments in the past few years. Just recently it was Ronaldo and now Boris Becker too. Before that Nadal had one. Gordie Howe. Bart Starr.
Many American football and baseball players too including Peyton Manning. Bartolo Colon. The list is getting into the dozens it seems.

What is driving this trend? Is there solid data behind it or not so much?
The trend includes both current and retired sports stars.

Is there a parallel trend of amateur athletes taking this shot in the dark too?
