Can they/do they use stem cells from cloned embryos?

I think that it is possible to use stem cells from cloned embryos, because ,besides the method that they were created, cloned embryos are pretty much the same as regular embryos. (technically)

There are a lot of discussions about stem cells in this forum, so if you are looking for more info, try using the site's search engine.

How long could we live for using cells in general/stem cells from the cloned embryo(s)? (To replace our unhealty cells with healthy cells) Could we live indefinetly by doing that? What would be the problems with doing so?

Cloned embryos cannot be brought to term right? So isn't that at least one difference between cloned embryos and normal embroys?

Thanks

This thread is about using normal cells/other types of cells and/or stem cells...I'll try and search through the forum for info but I might not be able to find what I need :/
