FULL SHOW: What’s at risk with new gene editing technology?


CRISPR technology has taken a new leap. Scientist David Liu of the Broad Institute says that fine tuning of this gene editing technology could correct about 89 percent of the mutations in human heritable diseases. Legal and Media analyst Lionel breaks it all down (13:29). Talks between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin are underway in Sochi. (0:55) Despite numerous controversies, including wearing blackface and brown face, Canadians have re-elected Justin Trudeau as their Prime Minister. However, his party lost a number of seats in Parliament. RT America’s Alex Mihailovich joins In Question live from Toronto to give us the details. (4:47)

    Does anyone recall how 15 years ago stem cells were going to cure everything. How's that going? Anyone foolish enough to suggest that some new technology will cure 89% of genetic defects should be called to task for such a ridiculous boast, giving false hope for millions. I will go out on a limb and predict this is a long way from practical use.

    If there is a gene that makes you suspicious, rebellious or religious, expect military make weapons (bacterial vectors) that edit that gene in masses of population. If you want to cripple a nation, drop a little (and I mean very little, microscopic) weapons in to their atmosphere, to cripple that nation. Or kill it.
    What a "blessing"!

    People have been manipulating the human genome forever by making decisions about whom to have children with. Only using CRISPR instead of emotions, social status issues, or popular delusions to guide the process will improve things. Don't fear designer babies. They'll be cute.

    Lionel is nothing but a third rate fake actor, with little brain and big mouth talking lots of rubbish. He said there is no danger for Epstain… The Bible says that God wiped out the world with the flood because of intentionally made genetic mutations.
