As technology advances, more things become possible. One of these things is genetically modifying a baby, this is very wrong. Genetic modifying or genetic engineering is altering someone or something’s DNA. Scientists hope to cure diseases with this method but doing this can lead to some harmful effects. This process is very unethical.
Another argument against GM foods, is that the production of modified foods could lead to new toxins or allergens that could be hazardous to both humans and animals. Higher cancer rates have also been linked to GM foods, resulting in more extensive research into whether genetically modified foods could carry varied types of carcinogens. Despite these concerns there are still some scientists who believe the fears against GM foods are outdated. Even with all this in mind, scientists and researchers cannot argue that there are still some benefits to GM foods such as, larger crop production, bigger produce, longer growing seasons, and much more. To help quell these concerns many scientists believe further oversight and testing of GM foods should
Doctors try to introduce healthy genes into cells with mutated DNA. There are glitches in this system including how to insert the genes without changing the whole body. It will take many more years of researching to refine this course of treatment. Controversies arise about people abusing this method. Some are worried that people will use this to make themselves more athletic or intelligent (The Basics on Genetics and Genetic Disorders).
2. What are the potential risks of the wider use of genetically modified foods? Environmental activists, religious organizations, and professional organizations and other scientists and government officials have all raised concerns about Genetically Modified foods, and indicated the faults at the agribusiness for achieving profit without having any concern for potential hazards and risks, and also on the government for terribly failing to exercise proper regulatory oversights on these concerns. Most concerns about Genetically Modified foods gets important into three categories: environmental hazards, human health risks, and economic concerns. 3.
An obvious reason causing the discrepancies was that the lab equipment used could have easily been contaminated from the previous lab before and could have affected the results of our lab. If there was left contaminants in the beaker and lab equipment it could have given us different results than was is expected. Also the measurement used could have been inaccurate, therefore producing the discrepancies Both the Biuret test and the Xanthoprotreic test were used in today’s lab procedures but assuming that the vast majority of protein contained one or both tyrosine and tryptophane we would be able to replace the biuret test in Part 1 in detecting protein in a substance with the Xanthoproteic test, This test would identify the tyrosine and tryptophane in a substance only difference is with this test it would turn samples with protein in it a yellow colour. When albumin is denaturing the peptide bonds linking adjacent amino acids are not hydrolyzed. In order to break down any protein primary structure we would need to use both heat and acid.
Many believe gene editing offers huge benefits and changes to our lives. On the other hand, people tend to have ethical questions when concerning gene editing. People worry that gene editing is going to offset the natural way of life. The conflict between potential and ethics draws the question; Is gene editing a cure and a beginning, or a beginning with a curse? With more research and studies, gene editing could potentially eliminate conditions and diseases.
As older cells are frequently used to make clones, it is possible that their age could be received by the developing embryos, which can at that point result in early aging issues and, possibly, even death. In addition, cloned organisms may create new diseases that don’t currently exist. This would be disastrous for humans and especially clones because some diseases are contagious, and if they are spread, it may take a big chunk of our population away. It would also take time for doctors to create a cure for upcoming diseases. Cloning many organisms may result in loss of diversity in genes.
Transhumanists believe that humans should do everything to transform the human condition in such a way that fundamental intellectual, physical and psychological limitations can be overcome. They think that what we are now is not good enough. Therefore transhumanists also think that cognitive enhancement by memory implants should be pursued to develop a better quality of life. First of all, transhumanists believe that pursuing memory enhancement and human enhancement in general is a moral obligation. Memory implants have the potential to revolutionize the human mind, enabling human beings to have greater intelligence and a greater potential to innovate new technologies that can increase quality of life for the entirety of the human race.
The people who suffer from high levels of homocysteine are at a high risk so they need to consult doctor for the further treatments. Foods to be avoided to make a healthy blood vessels like pickles, oily foods, consumption of more salt, deli meat, frozen pizza, canned soups are to be reduced to maintain diet on the blood vessels and to avoid damages to our
It is like a “potential medical miracle worker.” Gene therapy will produce a good gene for a person and control the bad gene. There are two main types of gene therapy. The first gene therapy is called “Somatic gene therapy.” Somatic gene therapy will treat the patient by using a good gene and putting it in the person’s cells. Even with the somatic gene therapy a person’s future child will likely not have these genes because they will not get passed on. The second gene therapy is called “Germ-line gene therapy.” Germ-line gene therapy will improve the genes in the egg or sperm cells.
