Genetic Tampering Reminder

Humanity loves new technology, and no one can argue that it isn’t fun and interesting. But watch out here - genetic tampering is just as dangerous to human survival as nuclear weapons, the only difference is that the explosion may seem from our perspective to move in ultra slow-mo. The organic laboratory that we all live in has evolved over billions of years. This chop chop recombining may make plants resistant to a specific disease or the other, but the long term structural stability cannot be easily established. And this doesn’t even take into account intentional military applications. Once the genie gets out of the bottle it can’t be retrieved.
