The tempting idea of genetic therapy or genetic modification has been around for several decades by now. A lot of people see recent advances in genetic engineering as a possibility to change their genetic code and make their lives better and easier. However, people less often think of curing terminal and dangerous diseases like HIV or different kinds of cancer that kill lots of people. It's more about improving the human mind and body — making a human being better, stronger, smarter, more attractive and so on. Someone even dreams about creating genetically modified babies — that parents someday will be able to choose hair or eye color, height and build of their child. 

 

Indeed, scientists have discovered ways to edit and remove genes, and a number of experiments on plants and animals proved it. However, a human organism is too complex to make these aspirations come true. For example, thousands of genes are responsible for height. You can't affect one physical trait without affecting others, let alone avoid the moral and ethical controversy that the idea results in.
