INTERNATIONAL: UK scientists given go-ahead to genetically modify human embryos

2016-02-01 16_12_17-UK scientists can genetically modify human embryos - CNN.comCNN – British scientists have been given the green light to genetically modify human embryos, for the first time in the nation’s history.

The landmark decision means scientists will now be allowed to alter the DNA of embryos, for research purposes only.

It remains illegal for these genetically altered embryos to be implanted in a woman. It is hoped the experiments will improve our understanding of the earliest stages of embryo development.

The research, which was approved by the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, will use excess embryos donated by couples who have had in vitro fertilization treatment.

Scientists will be focusing on the first seven days of a fertilized egg’s growth. In these early days, a fertilized egg evolves from a single cell to around 250 cells.

  1. The bad guys thrown out of Heaven, came to earth some time ago and also modified human embryos (in the traditional manner); and LOOK what happened!!. However, update to now. With the Worlds population over 7 Billion and soon to be 8, this medical exercise is not to save the human race BUT to save 1 race; the rest will die out from Designer diseases leaving lands open to be repopulated.
