    I was highly interested in genetics.
    But then, I found out what messing around with chicken’s genes, has done to them.
    Yes, it might be providing us some benefits for the time-being, but, what about the long-term effects? Not to mention, how the chickens are tortured.
    And, it’s not only the chickens who are treated like this. There are a lot of other animals who are hurt too, while we humans look to advance our lives.

    I know what you mean. It’s creepy.

    Fel, as you like Genetics, I would recommend looking into Medical Genetics. No, you won’t be experimenting on human genes, but you’ll be applying genetics to medical care and treating genetic disorders or birth defects. It’ll be constructive genetic applications. Plus there’s also Ophthalmic genetics, so if you decide too, we might end up working together (if it’s meant to be). ;) I’d also recommend Internal Medicine (Infectious disease) given your inquisitive nature and foresight. :)
