You are a scorpio, you see through BS, one of the most powerful signs in the zodiac. Know more then they let on, are deeply connected to others, extremely intuitive. I trust your intuition. Thank you for raising these issues.

Don't worry dr Mike, if we don't start to realize the orribile way we treated and we are treating this planet, in a couple of centuries we will be all dead, humas and superhumans. There won't be any world to worry about

Oh my goodness, I did a paper on CRISPR for my high school bio class. That shits scary.

Yooo I legit wrote my research paper on this last semester for Eng 101. I was so intrigued by this topic. Good thing I was taking Bio 101 to help me with the terms

The story is most likely bullshit just that guy who claimed to clone a person or the cold fusion guys. It's classic Science by Press Conference.

I thought we had come a long way since WW2. This doctor is just a 21st century Nazi trying to create an Aryan race. Joseph Mengele mark 2 needs stopping now.

Wait...we don't want to be able to eliminate some conditions for some people because some people may not be able to afford to get it? That doesn't quite seem right to me... there's always unequal outcomes, we don't need equality of outcomes, but equality of rights, etc.

I participated in model UN at the University of William and Mary. I was part of the World health organization Committee. Ty topic was gene modification and bioethics. I am just now seeing this and school is over😭this would’ve been some good stuff

Wow, it took you that long to come to that realization? I heard about CRISPR and CAS 9 in 2017... you're not wrong. I said when I first saw this breakthrough that it would either be the greatest boon medicine has ever seen or our ruination. Possibly both. But yeah, welcome to real life. Talking about the rich being able to afford the cures... let's talk about the 120k pricetag for the Hep C cure. I took care of a guy who'd been cured 3 times, but he was rich and just loved the IV drugs too much to leave them alone. Some aspects of what we do are ugly, Mike... real ugly.

I heard about this not long after it happened, and I was glad to hear that basically the entire scientific community was so angry about it. Some science fiction stories, like Jurassic Park, often paint the scientists as coldly pursuing knowledge and "progress" without regard to any ethical wisdom, and it's easy to adopt that caricature as our _actual_ view of the scientific community. But really, by exploring the possible ramifications of creating technologies without proper discipline to wield them, these sci-fi books and movies act as _warnings_ against those mistakes, and remind us that there _is_ a slew of philosophical considerations when bringing new ideas to fruition. These lessons and ideas are _not_ lost on the real-world scientists, and there _are_ strict ethical taboos that are condemned by just about everyone.

tl;dr: it's nice to know that real-world scientists aren't at all morally oblivious like many sci-fi scientists. ^_^

I’m reminded of an episode of Stargate where an advanced civilization call the Aschen gave them the ability to cure all diseases but secretly made them sterile. Stargate Season 4 episode 16. Gene editing could be an amazing prospect but could also be our downfall.

When you were crushing on Doctor Mike before seeing this... Then realize he's into the same kind of critical thinking as you. 🥰🥰🥰

The world already is divided into social/financial accessability.... stem cells for cancer treatment for example... theyre still researching it, but if it does come out as a worldwide available treatment, how much will it cost over the standard chemo and radiation? I anticipate that so many will still be forced to opt for the chemo and hope for the best...

Why CRISPER is bad ?
We can take out genetic diseases by CRISPER. If we support it . For good

Geneticists are far away from using CRISPR for editing human DNA. We are still trying to figure out what each part of the human genome does for the body in the first place.

As an engineer, I can't say that I'm terribly concerned about CRISPR. However, you are the expert more closely related to this field, so you may have insight I'm not aware of.
I think we need to have a serious conversation about this technology, and we need to do a better job,of informing the public and discussing the moral arguments for the use of this technology.

Sadly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been aware of this travesty in the scientific community for a decade now. I first caught word of this research in its infancy in 09. 23andme is the real evil. They’re banking our young DNA to age reverse all of us so we will be over populated, malnourished and living in Hell on earth. That’s where you should be focusing your concerns on at the moment.

Zombie movies, jurassic park movies, Captain America. I want to be genetically engineered to be a super soldier but if my body becomes stronger, SO DOES Bacteria and viruses.

Can you make a video about the Ebola outbreak in the Congo.

For anyone wondering, Elysium is a movie on the problem doctor Mike talked about.

We will just end up with alot more superbugs and supervirises. The geneticly altered humans will still get the bugs and viruses but they won't get symptoms. While the bugs and viruses are in their systems they will mutate to become super viruses and bugs. So essentially becoming a huge super incubator for mutations. This sounds like a bad zombie movie

Just a curious soul. At 1:41 you said that HIV is no longer the deadly disease that it used to be. Is it true that HIV can be cured? As I said, I am just curious. I love your content and the way you present them. Good job.

As far as I know, HIV can be managed and treated, but was only ever "cured" twice, and even that was debatable. Dr. Mike has a video on this, it's really good.

you talked about movies, all I could think of was 'Repo the Genetic Opera'. good movie, musical, I would suggest you watch it.

Doctors and government's don't want cures, they want expensive "treatments". Why cure someone when you can turn them into a cash cow, and milk money out of them for the rest of their miserable lives.

I hate to say this but chimera's, genetically altered diseases, already have been worked on by the Soviets in the cold war at the biopreparat facility. They had to use cruder methods than we have now but if they could find a way to alter a disease to make it a better bioweapon they did. Ken Alibeks autobiography is a good look into some of the things that they were working on.

I think this is a good thing. I mean, even if those kids die as a result we probably learned something from their lives so at least it wouldn't be in vain... Gotta look at the positives...
