New developments in bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and nano-biotechnologies will radically change the practice of medicine to be exhibited in the coming years. One approach that has the potential to carry this changing medical practice into a superhuman age and that has been dominating medical literature in recent years is the risk approach. This article aims to address the issue beyond the dichotomy of good or evil without wrapping the practice of medicine exhibited throughout the human body and history in the sacrament of holiness and falling into the traps of bioconservatism and solutionism.
