Note from TED: Do not take this talk as medical advice. This talk was filmed during a TEDx, and we flagged it because the content appears to be outside of TEDx guidelines. The field of gene therapy is still a new one. The claims of the speaker are based on her own personal opinions and not supported by any scientific evidence. TEDx events, which are organized independently by volunteers, are independent. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf
