@spreadsheet, while you see nothing but positive outcomes from the development of a scientific process for screening genetics, I find it quite disturbing.
As the author mentions in the article, genetic screening has already been used as a means to discriminate against fellow humans. This use of individual's genetic code is both disturbing and illegal.
Unfortunately, just like other laws, I am sure this one will be broken as well. Money and greed will outweigh the just use of such vital information and will effect the decisions of leaders and profit makers. After all, what insurance company wants to take on a client that is genetically predisposed to costly ailments.
The scary part of course is that fascists could use the data to identify sub-groups of culture and ethnicity to discriminate against them and take their freedoms based solely on a genetic feature that their parents passed along.
