Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A group of scientists from China, South Korea and the United States have for the very first time ever efficiently modified human DNA. Cenk Uygur as well as Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you believe in the comment section listed below.

" Researchers have been tinkering with the DNA in people and also other living things for decades. But something has long been considered off-limits: changing human DNA by any means that might be given for generations.

Currently, a worldwide team of scientists records they have, for the very first time, identified a means to efficiently edit the DNA in human embryos– without introducing the dangerous mutations that were a problem in previous attempts in other places. The work was published online Wednesday in the journal Nature.

" It's a quite amazing item of science," says George Daley, dean of the Harvard Medical Institution, that was not associated with the study. "It's a technological tour de force. It's truly exceptional." *.

Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian.

      Justin Seagull lol I know I know. I’m trolling. I just spent the last two hours watching worldstar videos and I’m having a tough time recognizing black people as decent. I know its foolish but I can’t help it. Some videos I saw really made my blood boil.

      +Trollop 7  I don’t despise the rich. I have issues with some of them being involved with pay to play corruption. A fish stinks from the head down. Without the corruptibility of our so called leaders there wouldn’t be any problems. There is a reason of why social justice and anti social justice get so much air time from both sides. It takes away attention from the things that actually effect most Americans and it doesn’t step on the feet of the puppet masters. It is gate keeping 101. Also to be fair most Americans are morons. TV sedated, celebrity obsessed , philistines.

      +Trollop 7 The DNA in question being edited is a result of the hereditary passing of genetic information from parent to offspring, in another words, as natural process as could be.The editing in question surely is mans genius, however, even the process involved in for instance the CRISPR/Cas 9 DNA editing, is a natural process already used by E. coli as an immune system of sorts to protect itself from viral infection.

      Yes. They all want to have white Aryan babies, and now they can. Very cool.

      philpott kentucky white people are gonna be overrated then ppl are gonna start wanting to stand out and start going for tanner or darker skin to make sure their kids stand out from the rest or curliest hair

      Can they edit out your idiot genes so you can distinguish between Japanese and Korea?

      +Mike Pence , I’m not talking about Egypt. I’m talking about Nubians and the cities & pyramids built by the Nubians further up the Nile River.

    • Posted by Alex M, at Reply

      +Futurism
      List of ancient cities built by Nubians
      Kerna (2600-1200 BCE)
      Napata (1000 BCE – 300 CE)
      Meroe (300 BCE – 300 CE)
      These ancient city states later came under control of the Kingdom of Kush, which managed to conquer Egypt in the 8th century BCE before being expelled by the Assyrians (who invaded Egypt a century later).

      There were also a series of east African city states built around the 10th century by Africans which became an integral part of the Indian ocean trade network before being conquered by Oman.

      There were also a series of centralized empires in the West Africa such as the Senghai empire, the Mali Empire. At one time, the richest man in the world, Monta Musa

      There were also several centralized states which emerged around the horn of Africa such as the Kingdom of Axum.

    Let’s make everyone white, and end racism

    • Posted by Waka Waka, at Reply

      Walter Corthell the world is slowly turning black, we can change it so everyone is white and whiteness does not die. Instead of all of us turning black we can turn white, no more hitlers would come to rise, it’s best for the darkies

    • Posted by John Helmes, at Reply

      @Walter Corthell You do know that dark skin came first right?

    • Posted by Love Bird, at Reply

      Waka Waka why not black white people age faster

    • Posted by Walter Corthell, at Reply

      Waka Waka that’s just racist. I’m just looking at it from an objective evolutionary view. Not a social one. There are more pros to being dark skinned than to be light.

    • Posted by Walter Corthell, at Reply

      John Helmes yeah because the lack of sunlight in upper latitudes resulted in losing melanin. Yknow how people are lactose intolerant? The gene that let us process lactose developed in Europe because they lacked the sun light to get adequate vitamin D most of the time. Most people who tend to be lactose intolerant have no European ancestry. I was looking at the issue at a more generalist stance so humans would more more adapted to a wider range of environments but I guess we could still cater to specific environments. Like people born deep in Kansas have no need for a high lung capacity compared to a Philippino person who is close to the coast and might rely on an aquatic profession.

    We have had designer babies since the dawn of man. The process of choosing a mate creates them.

    • Posted by uutuber431, at Reply

      yeah but you cant see a cancer gene lol

    • Posted by Vincent Feutry, at Reply

      Excuse me but there is two fallacies in what you said : 1. Dawn of man, over-generalization, 2. quiproquo, designer babies is not sexual reproduction, only a modern trend of it. Until gene editing, even for an eugenics devotee, there is always randomness in the result of choosing a mate. And in fact randomness is normally an advantage of sexual reproduction.

    • Posted by Egor's Egor, at Reply

      That’s natural selection(sexual selection). Designer babies is altering genetic code. Autosomal disorders/diseases, or predispositions might not be sexually selected out of a population unless one can physically alter the code, much like this.

    First they figure out how to edit human dna, then they make it ridiculously expensive so only the wealthy will get the best genes. Then a couple generations in this group will consider themselves superior to unedited humans. And considering human history with one group of humans considering themselves superior to another group, the next logical step will be genocide.

    • Posted by Muno Unom, at Reply

      So if you concider yourself superior to another person or of more value you think a genocide is the next logical step? Im sorry, but the amount of dumb asses with a bachelor think they are better then those without, masters think they are better then those without and so on. Also what about crippled people? Their value are usually in the negative(I say usually, cause there are some that manage to overcome it in a very positive way), we should kill them off then? I mean its only logical. What about people with downs? Feel like going on a rampage today? I mean its only logical.

    • Posted by 0cards0, at Reply

      the next logical step can be making it affordable & change everyone

  17. Posted by Robert Serrano, at Reply

    If you havent seen the movie Gattica watch it and then you will see why this is one path we should not follow.

      That is not eugenics, that is about breeding controls. It closer to Trans-humanism.

      You tried very hard at that comeback. You deserve a participation trophy which says in big bold letters “Everyone’s a Winner!”.

    • Posted by Goatlord, at Reply

      I know you’re just making a joke but the answer is technically yes. Intelligence isn’t entirely genetic, and isn’t even controlled by a single gene so it’d take a lot of research to even know which genes to change. Also, there are the environmental factors. For example, if Cenk has been eating paint chips his whole life that can’t be fixed with gene editing.
