• Question: if we bring back extinct animals (de-extinction) would it bring back old diseases which we cant beat?

      That’s a very good question. It’s likely that there would be new diseases from new species of animals.
      Some of which we’d be able to find a cure quite quickly but also there will be some that we would struggle to cure.

      I think there is likely to be a way to cure all diseases, no matter where they came from but some are much harder than others to cure, which is why there are still diseases that we haven’t managed to cure yet.
