As is, I deal with chronic pain, severe health problems, limits to my mobility, and isolation due to my genetic differences and the way people react to them. It is difficult to live with these impositions. If genetic-based therapies could help me, I would go for it.
When people seek to restrict genetic experimentation due to religious belief, I get indignant. Science should never be held back by mythology.
David Nash wrote:The mechanisms for altering our DNA to remove dangerous diseases is already available. And, unfortunately, the ability to do this kind of work is not limited to high-tech nations. Once the doors open to cure disease they will be pushed hard by those trying to find an edge in life. Improved strength, endurance, balance, better memory, improved reasoning. We will be looking for it all. Trying to hold back the tide of genetic experiments that are coming is futile. It is likely we will begin seeing the results within a few years, a decade at most. The real question is, are we going to be in front of the curve so we can control it, or are we going to be behind the curve and trying to fight the fallout.
