Question of the Week: Should There Be Restrictions on Scientific Research?

Question of the Week: Should There Be Restrictions on Scientific Research?

This post is devoted to the question we asked on Episode 79 of The Pseudoscientists podcast:

Do you think there should be restrictions on scientific research?

Is human cloning too unethical to be done? Should animal research be stopped? Should we be allowed to research areas of physics that could lead to enormously powerful weapons? Or is all research fair game?

Give us your answers in the comments, and our favourite (as well as the most interesting) responses will be read out and discussed on the show next week!
