(ORDO NEWS) — US intelligence has provided evidence that human genes are being tested and edited in China. John Ratcliffe is confident that in this way China is trying to create supermen for its army so that it can begin to rule the whole world.
According to the data provided by American intelligence, China has begun testing volunteers to improve physical performance using gene editing. The intelligence director also added that the PRC is a direct threat to the security of the United States, because the country is ready to use the most extreme means in order to begin to rule the world.
Gene editing technologies are mainly used for military personnel. As early as last year, the United States began talking about China’s interest in improving the military’s capabilities with modern technology like CRISPR. American scientists even wrote an article that China is going to create supermen. At the same time, they stressed that they are not worried about the advantages of Chinese soldiers, but that their scientists have begun to interfere even with human DNA.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying, after hearing the statements of the US intelligence chief, said there was no evidence that Chinese scientists were engaged in gene editing. He added that this is just another spread of rumors, because of which China is beginning to think badly in other countries.
At the moment, there is no information on how it is possible to change the physical abilities of a person using genetic engineering. But there have been studies that prove that it is possible to achieve mutations or damage to genes. As a result, some skills may be deactivated and others activated.
