May the Science be with You says:

This might be the science channel with the lowest number of religious trolls. Remarkable considering how big it has become.

Andres Bolanos says:

That Gliobastoma treatment sounds like pyrotherapy :p

Jimmy Crackorn says:

Give people HERPES to treat Zika. Still can't cure herpes. Sure, that's not a recipe for future disaster.

Weedle Guy says:

"Our brain Aren't growing"
Aren't that a contradiction of your other videos that says our brain never stop growing????

Triadicmoney 853 says:

To bad u need to be rich to really get anything

Mexican cartel ! says:

Why can't we GMO are babies be immune to most diseases like cancer

Vivian Dsouza production says:

But gene therapy is not a permanent cure, they will have to go every week and modify their T cells (life span of T cell). They only way is to identify the disease in the fetus and administrator the modification for a permanent cure.. otherwise it's just a pain you'll have to live with the rest of you're life with a bit of sugar coated top

Max Đỗ says:

"New cancer treatment"? Okay.
You still don't realize if you cut all the sugar and get your body in to Ketosis, you'll starve and kill the cancer cells. (Cancer can't use ketones, only glucose, while the rest of your body can use both).
It's not new, and it works.

Dave D says:

One of the reasons I want to be a geneticist in theory you could play God

Michael Olivares says:

So much for the nonsense about a small group of wealthy people covering up the cure for cancer. It turns out that it's just really hard to cure cancer and it's taken a long time to figure it out. But now that we know how and why it does what it does we are going to see cancer cures come out of the woodwork. Nothing is being suppressed.

Umbrella corporation, anyome? 'I am legend' movie, anyone?

Ben Dover says:

The unknown XD says:

Don't mind me thinking of the worst thing that could happen

Nvm I can't think of the worst situation it was just blank and reprogramming our genes is a good idea unless the gene we programmed have become a error and become a bigger threat eh we never know until one day it happens
