Altered DNA to Resist AIDS Applied on Human Baby Girls

29-November-2018

Description:It's a there is a terrible news. I concern that "Super Humans" and "Frankenstein" will probably be created in the future. What will happen if a failure of DNA editing occurred in a human body? I've found 1 news report and 2 videos talking about this news.


Story:There is a terrible news about a Chinese researcher edited a twin baby girls DNA before they were born. The researcher alleged that they are immune to AIDS.

I concern that he will possibly have a capacity to alter DNA for achieving other desired outcomes on humans. This means that "Super Humans" and "Frankenstein" will probably be created in the future. What will happen if a failure of DNA editing occurred in a human body?  

Scientists generally disagreed with his trial. The DNA editing technology is immature to apply on humans yet. And it's not ethical to do so.

The Nobel laureate David Baltimore, an organiser of the summit, who is professor emeritus of biology at the California Institute of Technology, called He’s work irresponsible. “I think there has been a failure of self regulation by the scientific community because of a lack of transparency,” Baltimore said. (Guardian)

There is an AP's video reporting this news. 


Chinese researcher claims to have made 1st genetically edited babies.

ABC News' Dr. Jennifer Ashton breaks down the claim from the researcher, He Jiankui, who says he altered the DNA of twin girls.

Reading

Description:Since I was a kid. I started to find my way to escape from reality. Initially, I escaped by watching cartoons on T.V. Until I was 10, I liked watching movies more. I found both of them could not fully satisfy me for some reasons, so, I tried to read novels. Once I was caught by the magic of novels, I couldn’t rip out of reading.
