The Real Truth About Gene Editing - Seven Things That Can Go Wrong - Episode 155

May 29, 2024

Gene editing is a new form of creating genetically engineered crops, and it is cheap and it is easy. This means that the number of GMOs that could be introduced, not only into our food supply, but into the environment, can be catastrophically large. 

One critical issue with GMOs, including genetic editing, is that it is prone to side effects. The biotech industry wants to pretend that gene editing is safe and predictable just like breeding, and they've convinced governments, in some cases, to turn a blind eye.

In this episode Jeffrey will share with you the truth about gene editing and these seven reasons why things can go wrong in the process:

  • Cutting the wrong place
  • Sloppy repair
  • Mixing genes
  • Mutant proteins
  • Insertion damage
  • Mutations from the process
  • Epigentic inheritance

The following video gives a clear and understandable breakdown of this complicated technology.
