A Penny For Your Thoughts

If you care about your future, then you should care about the Earth. The Earth is what gives us all of our resources; it is where we live. As we don’t have the technology to colonize other planets, the Earth is all we have. Right now, however, the Earth is in danger. Global warming is

GNO for Genetically Curing Diseases: Response

Science has made many bounds in the past few decades, and the rate of inventions has only been increasing. Something that scientists in China and Sweden have recently been allowed to research more is gene editing. This is basically scientists looking at the genomes of an embryo’s DNA and changing what is there. This is

GNO for Genetically Curing Diseases
