The Israeli and Palestinian researchers involved in the study shed light on, what they called, poorly understood human developmental stages. professor Jacob Hanna, who led the research team, said the embryo went through all the phases via which a normal embryo would go.
Miscarriages And Diseases
As per the Mayo Clinic, most of the miscarriages take place in the first 11 weeks of human development. By understanding what goes on in the first month of human development, scientists could prevent diseases and miscarriages and hence prevent lives.
