Done to embryos could prevent inherited illnesses and create.
Disease free babies are medically team is here doctors Manny Alvarez and -- are -- good morning to both -- good morning -- This is a very loaded topic because they're ethical implications but doctor -- What are the implications here we -- can genetically engineered to remove genetic diseases correct.
That's correct but actually trying to do is remove the mitochondria DNA.
And is mitochondria DNA responsible for public severe illnesses such as Tay Sachs and others really severe it.
Diseases that have gotten a lot of times incompatible with life and if they did they do survive they survive -- their earliest adulthood so these diseases are devastating.
What they're not doing is change the whole genetic makeup of the babies so it's still really the genes of the parents that they -- -- these mitochondria DNA and replacing them with healthy team.
But of course the problem doctor Roberts is once you start tinkering there where you stopped yeah I know -- is a big ethical that a debate over this.
Because in on the other day you're -- -- sort of re engineering.
Human being is and I still have a little bit of a fundamental problem I understand the disease and how deadly it is but.
You know one day's gonna be.
Relies the next day it's gonna be the you know something Els.
-- moments in ohm I'm very happy that issue will go I don't know but I know a medical diseases like my -- diseases of very devastating.
OK quickly this next topic now excites me people that are scared of the needle like me there are thousands of people out there you might -- -- replace these shots.

You -- that biggest issue is Andy compliance you have to make -- the patches on and -- it stays on the patients are compliant.
And the others that they have to prove that the inoculations famous -- our doctor Alvarez there is science now that proves women can be blinded.
By jealousy is this correct yes and number were they are sure that that.
-- science behind me.
This may be -- -- got a what do you think well.
That's of the study showing -- they actually put Seattle woman in front of the computer and show and ask them to look at landscapes in the command in front of the computer that -- that -- And wind amendments when they switched it to women that women could no longer saw the landscape so what they're saying that you turn.
