In the article, “Permanent Cure for the Common Cold” (BTW) I learned that when the temperature started to change during the winter, the flu season came back again. What if the scientist could find a way to make sure that none of us gets sick with these diseases again. Turts out, they may be on the road to doing just that-by using what is essentially a pair of molecular scissors. How does it work? When a cold or flu virus spreads throughout your body. It does so by taking over cells and making copies of itself at the molecular level. Once the disease has taken over cells this way, it spreads and continues to replicate throughout the body. The cell’s RNA. But now, scientists have discovered a tool called the CRISPR Cas13, a gene-editing tool that’s basically like a pair of molecular scissors. The CRISPR can target the part of the RNA that’s carrying the virus, and just “cut” it out.
I think this is a good way to cut out the flu, because many people get affected by this every year, at least twice a year. This discovered fight with these virtues in order to kill it. I think using these medicines can help many people, because no one likes to be sick during the winter or any season during the year.
