How to genetically modify human embryos - Business Insider

A group of researchers shocked the world in April when they revealed that they had used a revolutionary gene editing tool discovered in 2012 called CRISPR to edit the DNA of human embryos.

They used a tool that's so simple, a person with molecular biology skills and know-how could probably do it in a bio-hacker space for less than $2,000, according to experts.

I don't care about GMO foods either. Bring on the future as long as the big corporation isn't purposely crushing the competition to monopolize the market.

There's nothing wrong with 'frankenfoods' ... if you are affected by a food you will know it pretty fast. The idea that people are gradually poisoned over time by them.. well most people are.. it's called eating too much sugar and refined carbs.

Ultimately GMO foods increase yields and increase resistance against pests which is the whole reason for them. Increased yields per acre equals increased profits and ultimately greater supply of product with less waste. More efficient... just like you expect a corporation to be.

I personally would have nothing against lab grown meats either assuming they tasted good.
