Should genetherapy be used to cure people?

Some people think gene therapy should be used to cure people because their health is the most important thing and the technology should be used for that. Gene therapy is an experimental technique that uses genes to treat or prevent diseases.

On the one hand ,the most important factor in the development of gene therapy is the fact that, for genetic disorders, there is only one way of curing the disease,gene therapy, when successful, can have a number of advantages over drug therapy such as providing a cure rather than easing the symptoms.

On the other hand , in clinical trials already carried out the effects of the treatment have only been short-lived. Researchers are testing several approaches to gene therapy. Moreover, replacing a mutated gene that causes disease with a healthy copy of the gene.

In my opinion, gene therapy must be used for healthy people but always with one limit , because if all the people could live a lot of time there would be over population and we can't live in this world because the natural resource would have finished.
