DR. MARK RYALL, a recently retired teacher/professor of Mathematics, Biochemistry, and Economics from Hamilton, Ontario, as well as a triathlete who has represented Canada in the World Age Group Championships, joined us to discuss his latest release, "Age-Decoded".
FROM HIS BIO:
"I published my novel "Age-Decoded" because of the many advancements in CRISPR genetic engineering. The book's central question is: What could possibly go wrong with the advent of genetic engineering? The story itself focuses on genomicist Dr. Frieda Sengmeuller, who uses CRISPR to finally stop human aging. But the government secretly uses her methods in other psychological ways, jeopardizing freedom and democracy.
I feel this topic so important, given the impending tsunami of genetic engineering technology. A novel like mine enables readers to really imagine and feel the effects on humanity."
