The Food and Drug Administration will start considering whether it's okay to create a healthier baby by using DNA from three people.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

A doctor at Oregon Health & Science University says he produced five healthy monkeys using a specific DNA replacement technique. Now they want to move onto humans. And the doctor who can do this will attempt to convince the FDA that he can. When asked about ethical concerns, Dr. Shoukhrat Mitalipov says it's not gene modification, it's correcting them and returning them to normal. The way they do it is by swapping out the nucleus DNA from a donor and replacing it with the expectant mother's. So traits like eye and hair color can be passed on but the disease would not be... diseases like blindness, organ failure and epilepsy.
