Dangers compared to science fiction

Steve Hilgartner, a science and technology professor at Cornell University, said it's natural for a relatively new science to have its skeptics.

"If you propose that you're going to introduce a technology that's going to have a revolutionary impact on society and make everything different, you should expect that people are gonna say, 'Wait. Let's hear more about this, let's watch it, let's study it, debate it, and decide if this is what we want,'" said Hilgartner, chairman of the Ethical, Legal and Social Issues Initiative of the Cornell Genomics Initiative.
