Product Notes

What will it mean when most of US can afford to have the information in our DNA-all three billion chemical letters of it-read stored and available for analysis? Cracking Your Genetic Code reveals that we stand on the verge of such a revolution. Meet cancer patients returned to robust health and a cystic fibrosis sufferer breathing easily because scientists have been able to pinpoint and neutralize the genetic abnormalities underlying their conditions. But what are the moral dilemmas raised by this new technology? Will it help or hurt US to know our genetic destiny? What if such information falls into the hands of insurance companies employers or prospective mates? One thing is for certain: The new era of personalized gene-based medicine is relevant to everyone and soon we may have to choose whether to join the ranks of the DNA generation.
