"It's been hailed as one of the most potentially transformative inventions in modern medicine, bringing the prospect of designer babies closer than any other technology to date, but CRISPR-Cas9 could be riskier than we thought.

The technology that could spark a gene-editing revolution has been caught introducing hundreds of unintended mutations into the genome, and with scientists already testing it in humans, it's set off some serious alarm bells."

What have they unleashed on us. They need to cease testing immediately. The wrong mutation is all it takes...

Not to come off as harsh but do we have a source for any of those claims.  Crispr has the potential to end a lot of suffering.

We are still not sure of the ramifications of our meddling in the gene pool e.g. Food, insects,. I have a great idea let's rewrite DNA strands and omit humanity ☠️
