Written by

In November, Chinese language scientist He Jiankui introduced that he’d genetically edited a human embryo that was implanted into a lady who then gave beginning to twin ladies, making them the world’s first gene-edited people. Nearly instantly, the scientific neighborhood derided the experiment as unethical and dangerous. Now, some are saying he demonstrated “a troubling lack… of the requisite understanding of genetics and gene enhancing” — that means the dual ladies may not even profit from the dangerous process.

  • Also what if it benefited them more than it negatively effects them

  • If we don’t take risks our progress will slow down a lot, we must take risks to ensure a future of our species.

  • sooner or later, it’s going to happen especially as the access to knowledge and means to pull it off gets easier..but for gene-edited humans, what will it mean for their entire lives?

  • For those that think this was a good thing —- CRISPR-CAS9

    A study published in Nature Biotechnology (July 2018) explores the accuracy of the Cas9 scissors. Scientists at the Sanger Institute at Cambridge, UK sought to determine whether Cas9’s cut and paste process is accurate enough to be safely used in humans for treating disease. To answer this important question, they examined in detail the DNA segments in mouse embryonic stem cells and human cells near the segment that was cut to see if they were affected. They found that after the DNA was repaired (new DNA pasted into the “cut” segment), the scissors continued to cut the DNA over and over again. They found significant areas near the cut site where DNA had been removed, rearranged or inverted. https://www.nature.com/articles/Nbt.4192

  • These are the same scientists that cried over human testing during the war and then came out the other side like”well we learned from this, so its okay🤗”

  • it’s not even ethical to start with, this He Jiankui….He lured the couple to give out the permission of doing IVF with knock-out gene CCR5 with a fabricated document using Shen Zhen O&G Hospital’s name. Then there was also experiments done and it was proven that usage of CRISPR-Cas9 in germline providing the body disability protecting from cancer. Plus, Human Genome Project is not even completed yet how come a scientist is sooo sure by knocking out one gene, it will not cause other mutation and off target? And did you see how much China shoved money for a laureate? Its 480B compared to US -if im not mistaken. Tht should give you idea of how much someone need a nobel award..
