Highly intelligent people suffer from more disorders

High intelligence correlates with higher susceptibility to mental and physical disorders.

This implicates high IQ as being a potential risk factor for affective disorders, ADHD, ASD, and for increased incidence of disease related to immune dysregulation. Preliminary findings strongly support a hyper brain/hyper body association which may have substantial individual and societal implications and warrants further investigation to best identify and serve this at-risk population.

Gene drive technology

Fresh from science fiction land, today’s scientists give you thegene drive, a gene editing technology. And boy is it scary:

Because gene drives rapidly spread genetic modifications through animal populations, they have the potential to alter entire species and wipe out diseases such as malaria. Unlike conventional genetically modified crops or animals, organisms carrying gene drives are designed to move across international borders.
