Address the following questions in the essay:
- 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.
- 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?
- What concerns (with regard to ethics, privacy, etc.) might arise with the widespread use of such tests?
