Gene editing: it is no longer science-fiction. Today’s scientists are using microscopic “scissors” to cut, alter and repair broken gene cells. This upcoming healthcare tool could be the answer to “incurable” genetic diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, sickle cell anemia and even cancer. Although the science behind it is still fairly new, gene editing may be the next big thing in ultra-personalized healthcare.
Imagine a world without chronic illness, where every human being would have the chance to live to 100. Envision a planet without costly prescription medications with dangerous side-effects. What if that world was possible today? It is; so long as proper nutritional concepts are incorporated into a healthy lifestyle.
