Many of the sources retrieved were obtained from the biomedical sciences and published in the last decade, owing to more recent innovations in genetic : Jennifer L. Dempton. Intervention Co-twin Control Studies. Eighty years ago, the first genetically sensitive behavioral intervention studies were conducted using what was called the method of co-twin control (Gesell & Thompson, ; Hilgard, ; Strayer, ).One member of an identical twin pair was trained for accelerated motor or language development, both highly heritable traits, in order to investigate Cited by:

There are many different versions of Intervention Theory, ranging from those who believe aliens merely seeded life here and then left it to naturally evolve (sometimes called “directed panspermia” or “terraforming”), to those who think aliens were actively involved in genetic manipulation to create domesticated species and humans.

Human well-being might be more effectively promoted through a program of germline intervention, freeing those resources to help those who suffer in. At some point the line where genetic intervention is carried out for the sake of improving health will be crossed, but people will surely disagree about where this line lies.
Such a lack of clarity might likely be heightened when parents are faced with making decisions which will affect their own child. Much of the discussion in the book relies on anecdotal evidence, and sometimes the author makes unsubstantiated claims (such as the discussion on Long Term Capital Management) about the attitudes and intentions of those who are involved in genetic engineering, either in a commercial or a regulatory context, but as a whole the book is a good /5(17).

Peterson. This timely volume clearly lays out the central ethical questions raised by today's rapid advances in biotechnology. James Peterson sorts through the maze of clinical decisions occasioned by human genetic intervention, organizing the range of moral considerations that now face us and exploring their practical impact on individuals, families, and communities.5/5(1).
Human genetic intervention could be considered a microcosm of the larger field of bioethics. According to James Peterson, 'it raises almost all the basic issues addressed in a standard bioethics course, from informed consent to the goals of medicine.' Peterson argues that it is imperative to view human genetic intervention from an ethical framework, particularly as the technology in that Pages: "Genetic Turning Points is an outstanding study of the problem of genetic engineering and related ethical issues.
It addresses difficult and sometimes technical matters in a style that is both clear and scholarly, and it provides valuable insights into issues that are being thrust to the fore by scientific progress. Genes store the directions for all life on earth.
