Zampieri. My prediction is this – before modern medicine has any significant net effect on the genetic health of the human population (and I am not acknowledging that it does, if all factors are taken into consideration), we will have the technology to take control of our own genetic destiny.

We will, in effect, take control of our own evolution. Modern medicine versus human evolution. Modern medicine versus human evolution book Witwatersrand Univ.
