I have to say that I find the subject of genetics fascinating. It is amazing when you consider the advances in genetics that scientists have developed over the years.
DNA analysis has now allowed the exoneration of a lot of innocent people that were convicted of crimes that they didn’t commit. Also, the development of genetic testing in order to determine the likelihood of developing certain diseases is also promising.
It gives people a choice and allows them a chance to develop a proactive plan against development of the disease. There was story on the news the other day about a lady that had breast cancer in her family. She took a genetic test that revealed that she had a very likely chance of developing the disease and decided to get a double mastectomy in order to avoid the disease altogether.
While this may seem drastic to some people, at least it empowered the lady to do something about her health.
