interesting facts about cell structure

what are cell organelles?

Cell organelles are like tiny parts inside a cell that have specific jobs, just like different workers in a factory. These parts help the cell do important things, like making energy, building proteins, and storing stuff. Think of them as the workers that keep a cell working properly! They are practically the organs of a cell, hence why they are called organelles.

types of organelles and their uses

Ethical (Right or Wrong) Concerns:

  1. Changing Genes: MRT changes a baby’s genes in ways that can be passed on to other generations. Some people wonder if it's okay to make these changes, especially since we can't predict all the results.
  2. Three Genetic Parents: A baby with DNA from three people might wonder about their identity and where they fit in their family and society.
  3. Consent: Future babies can't say yes or no to having their genes changed, which raises questions about their rights.
  4. Slippery Slope: There's worry that starting with preventing diseases might lead to picking other traits for babies, like their height or intelligence, which can lead to big debates about what's fair or right.

Legal (Law) Concerns:

  1. Rules: Different countries have different rules about MRT, making it hard to agree on who should be allowed to use it and how to keep it safe.
  2. Family Laws: With three people’s DNA, laws about who is officially a parent might need updates.
  3. Who's Responsible: If something unexpected happens because of MRT, it's not clear who should be responsible.

Social (Society) Concerns:

  1. Who Gets Access: MRT might be expensive, so only people with a lot of money could use it, which isn’t fair to everyone else.
  2. Feeling Different: Kids born through MRT might feel left out or treated differently because of their unique DNA.
  3. Views on Disabilities: There's a conversation about whether we should try to prevent all genetic conditions or learn to support and value everyone's differences.

These issues mean we have to think carefully about how we use MRT, balancing the good it can do against these tricky questions.
