Breaking DNA Strains

Breaking DNA Strains

In Biology lessons, one reads of mutations…
That inexplicable quirk of natural selection…
For once in a while some individual thrives…
While at other times, another withers and dies…

The latest movies exhort the supreme human being…
Through the process of mutated genes, he comes into being…
The Marvel World of Super Heroes and super bad Villians …
Though fictional, is peppered with humans far from normal…

Now the latest medical news serve out a most dire warning…
As health experts blared incessantly of the dangers of smoking..
A timely warning is posted of the dangers from e cigarettes or vaping..
Being a relatively young phenomenon, dire warnings are slow in coming..

Vaping smoke can and will break up DNA strains in human cells…
Clinically proven in laboratory studies, these results are a hard sell..
Broken DNA and mutated genes, there is scant enough difference…
Looks like vaping smoke, even nicotine free, comes with a consequence..

Nicotine free vaping is freely touted to be non addictive..
Many a hard core smoker is tempted to do a switchover to vaping…
But therein lies a perplexing dilemma, for new smokers pick up vaping..
A means to an end to cut down smoking, vaping now picks up a following..

Makes one wonder, those who do smoking  or vape smoking in particular…
Will they ultimately be a source of mutated genes at the level molecular..
Will the day happen when we will see human with vastly superior qualities..
Or will there be  more unimaginable diseases caused by bad mutated genes..?
