As In The Days Of Noah: Industrialized Human DNA Modification Is Coming Sooner Than Most Think

NPR, August 2017: “[An] international team of scientists reports they have, for the first time, figured out a way to successfully edit the DNA in human embryos — without introducing the harmful mutations…” That article went on to say the research is ultimately aimed at helping families plagued by genetic diseases. I think that part is wonderful. I had an uncle by marriage who had a complex genetic disease that he unknowingly passed to his daughters; it shortened their lives by several decades. Breaking those defective genetic chains would be a boon to the human race. The potential issue is that DNA modification won’t stop there. What’s going to happen when someone says to the scientist repairing an embryo’s DNA, “While you’re at it, can you make him a giant?”
