Consumer Genetic Testing

Address the following questions in the essay:

  1. Would you be interested in having such a genetic test done? Why or why not? If you have had a consumer DNA test done and would like to share your experiences, you are welcome to do so.
  2. Would you want to know if you were destined to contract an incurable degenerative disease such as Huntington’s disease or Alzheimer’s later in life? Would the results of such a test cause you to alter your lifestyle?
  3. What concerns (with regard to ethics, privacy, etc.) might arise with the widespread use of such tests?
