The World Anti

Doping Agency (WADA) was created to prevent athletes from using
performance

enhancing drugs, but with recent developments in Genetic Engineering,
WADA will have to overcome genetic doping.
Thanks to recent advances, farmers can
crossbre
ed ve
getables that are genetically improved to be better for you. The cloning of
genes is an established procedure, but the cloning of organisms is still experimental and
highly infamous.
Gene therapy has rebounded since it has been introduced into the wor
ld
of science; in 2009 molecular biologist Alessandrio Aituti reported that he and his team
in Milan had cured nine out of ten babies born with bubble baby disease. After Atuti had
infected the babies with an engineered virus, the infants generated a norma
l immune
system.
