Throughout the past few even decades, there has been a long-standing debate over genetics and its role in reshaping the future for well-being. Doubtlessly, the in-depth study of genes has given rise to several new concepts and wiped out the old misconceptions and beliefs. Whether it's racial discrimination or unethical behavior, researchers have made notable contributions to providing us with logical reasoning based on gene transfer.
The scientific revolution in the fields of biotechnology, genetic engineering, and medicine has transformed the overall study of organisms. Have you ever thought about why people have greater control over their lives than was possible in the past? A key reason is genetics and the medical revolution.
We have continuously introduced medical interventions to modify human disease, enhance muscle growth, and alter the impact of certain drugs on mankind.
What is the future of genetics? Is it safe for the whole of mankind, or will it put lives in danger? On the one hand, the technology can devise effective medical solutions for several life-threatening diseases. On the other hand, the study of genetics might lead towards the creation of “superhumans” with maximized intelligence, say, but greater discrimination in society.
Possible negative aspects of genetic engineering can threaten human lives. On the contrary, if we look for positive outcomes, genetics and its interventions has taken up a very important space in our lives. It’s a fact that the study of genetics benefits humans more than harming them. For this reason, we have compiled a list of possible advantages arising from this revolutionary field.
1. Genetic Mutation
When professionals dig deep into the concept of mutations, they can determine DNA errors leading to disease and illness. Prenatal and adult genetics are subcategories of genetic study that can involve diagnosing rare diseases. .
2. Genetic Testing
Genetic testing is a remarkable intervention that helps us know the risk of developing certain diseases. The testing method helps determine family history and make people aware of common family disorders and diseases..
3. Brain Implantants?
We interact with hundreds of people on a regular basis. But do we remember the names of all? Obviously, no. To make our interactions meaningful and long-lasting, medical researchers are working towards memory extension. This might l help people remember the names of people whom they meet on a day-to-day basis. You might be thinking, “How is that possible?” It’s simple; working on those genes that are associated with memory, one could possibly extend it. It sounds strange, but that’s how genetic revolution is changing the field.
4. Body Implantations
Future implantation techniques are more concerned with the improvement of human beings in all areas. For instance, in coming years, the concept of the artificial eye may become commonplace, one that can view frequencies, rather than just color and visuals. .
Predicting the future is challenging. Scientists and researchers are making a great contribution to improving human life and the way we perceive it. Genetics has the potential to alter our ways of living, as well as our physical and mental conditions. The way we deal with genes has transformed much of what we know about humans and their life jounreys. . But there is still a long path to come for mankind’s future.
How do genes transform us? Can we alter them enough to make us, in time, immortal? To explore this topic in depth Dave Davis’ novel The Last Immortal, is a wonderful journey into the life of a long-liver. A very long-liver.
