Just when we thought I’d heard everything about HIV we read this:
So I guess when it’s done if I put in a quarter it will start all over again from scratch? Whole new game! I might get more points eating Zika and IV (Immune Deficiency not 4).
CRISPR is said by Wikipedia and DuckDuckGo (and multiple sources they rely on) to be this:
So CRISPR are SOPDNACSRBS, Segments Of Prokaryotic DNA Containing Short, Repetitive Base Sequences.
Let’s look at what Wikipedia states on those, “Segments Of Prokaryotic DNA Containing Short, Repetitive Base Sequences play a key role in bacterial defense systems. It happens naturally in the body.”
In other words, your body gets rid of HIV and Zika.
CRISPR/SOPDNACSRBS – We can use these terms interchangeably.
“The CRISPR/Cas system is a prokaryotic immune system that confers resistance to foreign genetic elements such as those present within plasmids and phages that provides a form of acquired immunity.” states Wikipedia.
Acquired Immunity Defense System – AIDS
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR, pronounced crisper) are segments of prokaryotic DNA containing short, repetitive base sequences. These play a key role in a bacterial defence system, and form the basis of a genome editing technology known as CRISPR-Cas9 that allows permanent modification of genes within organisms.
Genome editing? What is a genome? It is the contents of a cell, it’s “genetic material”.

Notice the mutations. They are still bugs, that basically do the same thing, not monsters.
Is CRISPR in pill form yet?
