This time it’s our Immune System – We have spoken a lot about the difficulties of genetically engineering our bodies in this BLOG. Looking at the cell and its programming through epigenetics, we can see how complex a system it is. I always cringe when someone says we should genetically engineer anything. The complexity goes well beyond our current scientific understanding. Bill Gates is genetically engineering milk to change the bacteria in out guts. This in turn will reprogram our immune system. Bill is a genius in computer programming but does he really understand what he is getting into here?
