Genetic screening saved this baby's life
Genetic screening, especially whole-genome screening in which people can learn about their possible risk for certain diseases, remains controversial, since the information is neither definitive nor always accurate. In most cases, genes can only predict, with a limited amount of certainty, whether a disease such as breast cancer or Alzheimer's looms in a person's future. As the Food and Drug Administration contemplates the merits and efficacy of such screening, some doctors and researchers are using it with great success, according to a new study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
