Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Human Genome Editing: It’s Time to Face the Big Ethics Question The Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing, held earlier this month at the Francis Crick Institute in London, closed with a statement that “heritable human genome editing remains unacceptable at this time,” adding: “Public discussions and policy debates continue and are important for resolving whether this technology should be used. Governance frameworks and ethical principles for the responsible use of heritable human genome editing are not in place.” Pointing to “risks and unintended effects” of gene editing, the statement warned that “Necessary safety and efficacy standards have not been met.” The statement may have prompted sighs of relief from those who were concerned that the summit’s participants would exploit the event to immediately push for changing the law banning human germline (heritable) genetic modification (HGM) in the U.K. Indeed, it was a significant step back from the conclusion of the previous summit on HGM in 2018, which concluded that “it is time to define a rigorous, responsible translational pathway” toward clinical trials of germline editing. But the statement failed to meaningfully engage with the biggest ethical question around HGM. It focused on how to make the technology acceptable by improving “safety and efficacy,” while failing to lay to rest the specter of eugenics that loomed over the summit. The anti-eugenics group Stop Designer Babies has pointed out that legalizing HGM will inevitably lead to a eugenic society of genetic “haves” and “have-nots” in which wealthy parents can choose “designer” traits in their babies, such as skin, hair and eye color, IQ and athletic prowess.

Questions of The Day!
It was mentioned in the recent Ickonic interview that folks could download a chapter of your book for free on gut healing from your website. I might purchase your book eventually, but in the meantime would be happy to see what this one chapter would reveal. Don’t see that option here on the website. Would it be possible to send me the link, or point me to the relevant spot on the website?
Hello RSB, its Hannah again. The one that said my 4 year old is an old man in a little boys body… haha : ) Maybe not the best description. He’s wise for being so little. Anyways, I have looked up Hava. Thank you for suggesting her to me. Do you think foliumPx is okay for my son to take regarding toxic build-up? If so, how much should I give to him and for how long? I also sent an email to FoliumPx because the coupon code was not working and I haven’t received an answer. I am in France and am not sure I can call him.
Okay, one more question. A friend has a 5 year old daughter that has allergies. I know that she is also vaccinated with the typical child vaccinations. Thankfully, he is seeking a natural option in helping her. My husband has suggested him do the Aloe+Sovereign Silver protocol for her but he is unsure of the dosages for a 5 year old. Could you help us? I also suggested the little on could benefit from BioRays liquid supplements for littles after the protocol. Thank you : )
