Eugenics is Greek for "well-born." Eugenics improves generations by allowing people to be the best they can be. Eugenics is a movement that is aimed at improving the genetic composition of the human race. Eugenics will allow people the opportunity to live longer happier lives.

The benefits are numerous for gene therapy but insurance companies have to have a safety line. If a person dies by receiving medical care should the company have to give money...

When someone says "zombie" you think of the walking dead, already dead beings who come back to life, who sole perupose is to infect someone else. The only way to kill them is to shoot them in the brian. They have an endless supliy of engery and can't feel pain. The truth is zombies are a bigger threat than you would think. Rabies is the key.

There would be no way that an initiating country could afford the amount of food they need to survive through biotechnology companies (companies that produce GMF's). Since th...
