Scientists should use genetic engineering to improve our lifestyle.Just by inserting or removing that extra gene they can examine a human before birth and prevent humans from having diseases."Positive eugenics encouraged parents displaying favorable characteristics to have large families.Superior intelligence, intellectual achievement, and artistic talent are examples."
