Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?

The gastrointestinal system, also known as the digestive tract, is a collection of organs within humans and other animals dedicated to the intake, digestion, and eventual expulsion of nutrients. It is therefore responsible for turning that candy bar into a needed energy spike or that second baked potato into an unwanted bit of pudge around the midsection.
