CITE THE MAJOR POINTS AND AGAINST HUMAN GENE

THERAPY
The arguments for gene therapy may be as follows:
Gene therapy may lead to reverting genetically-prone illnesses,
hence saving us from many forms of cancers and other inherited
diseases.
Gene therapy helps us understand better the way our bodies defend
themselves
Gene therapy will make us more healthy
Gene therapy will help humans by decreasing the amount of deaths
and illnessess related to genetic conditions.
Arguments against it include:
To some, playing with our genes is like trying to play God, and
trying to manipulate nature
Gene therapy can also go wrong and produce terrible mutations
There is not sufficient background studies to prove that genetic
therapy is permanent, nor 100% effective.
Gene therapy many not be the solution to reverting diseases, and
maybe we are placing it on a pedestal, where it may not belong.
