Are you willing to engineer the DNA of your unborn children and grand-children to be healthier? Better looking? More intelligent? Why are rates of autism, asthma, and allergies exploding at an unprecedented pace? Why are humans living longer and having far fewer kids?

Futurist Juan Enriquez and scientist Steve Gullans conduct a sweeping tour of how humans are changing the course of evolution for all species sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. For example:

What if life forms are limited only by the bounds of our imagination? Are designer babies and pets, de-extinction, even entirely newspecies fair game?

As humans, animals, and plants become ever more resistant to disease and aging, what will become the leading causes of death?

Man-machine interfaces may allow humans to live much longer. What will happen when we transfer parts of our selves into clones, into stored cells and machines?
