Rouge Scientist are trying to gain superhuman strength, with boosted strength and senses, by editing their own genes.

Josiah Zayner, a biochemist and former NASA worker, tried editing his own DNA by removing a protein which inhibits muscle growth.

He became the first person to edit his DNA with a CRISPR Tool.

 

 

 

 

The ex- NASA worker removed myostatin, which inhibits muscle growth, with the gene-cutting technology. He said: “This is the first time in history that we are no longer slaves to our genetics.”

This is not the first time someone has edited their DNA, previously  Mr Zayner, whose firm sells DIY gene-editing kits, live-streamed himself injecting the modified copy of his DNA. He initially started to see growth in his muscles.

Another ‘biohacker’ from US  is planning to insert a genetic mutation that lets humans see on the ultraviolet spectrum.

Such technology is highly regulated in the US and UK, because theie is nothing wrong or illegal to edit their own DNA’s.

London-based CRISPR researcher Robin Lovell-Badge warned of adv­­erse reactions. But University of Manch­ester bioethicist John Harris said: “There’s a long history of scientists experimenting on themselves.”
