Genetic Engineering The Pros and Cons of Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering is the growing science of the world and is increasingly under the spotlight over ethical issues. Is biotechnology going to save lives, rather than destroy them? and will the benefits outweigh the risks? The main problem with such questions is that we don't know the answer until we try them out. Like all sciences it is hard to predict outcomes, so far there have been more failures being told than success stories. Gen

It has favored the educated and the skilled,” says M. B. Zuckerman, editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World

No one can learn how to be a hero and no one can teach it. A hero should know how to decide what is right, what is wrong, and what to stand for. A hero is someone that you see as being higher than you in strength, greatness and confidence. You wish someday that you could be just like them. And when you get to their point of greatness
