I guess in some ways thats my point small fish... the rules are never the same for long
Years ago drugs were legal before WE knew the collective harm or impact of them, bikes got lighter but not too light, we didnt know about vitamins and fluid replacement and now we do.
What im saying is we're not far from a point when the rules must be fully and honestly reviewed...or there will be no point. It is in human nature to go above and beyond, to use all our knowledge and resources to reach our goals, what happens in say 50-100 years when people CAN and ARE being genetically modified......?
Where are the limits? The limits are always changing faster and faster, now we as a collective need to become less paranoid and more responsive, faster at adapting our acceptance of these limits and rules with the same fervour in which we take up mobile phone and computer technologies, its linked its on the same planet so lets get a grip.

Genetically altered babies born
Scientists have confirmed that the first genetically altered humans have been born and are healthy.
Up to 30 such children have been born - 15 of them as a result of one experimental programme at a US laboratory.
An "unwelcome" development say scientists
But the technique has been criticised as unethical by some scientists and would be illegal in many countries, including the United Kingdom.
