The $126 million genetic-testing company can tell you how to live smarter, better, and longer. It can also tell you what might kill you.
This is the sort of thing I’m talking about when I tell you that there are far more important things going on beneath the surface of our society than the moment-to-moment political “crises” the howler monkeys of the media constantly push.
It’s only been a bit more than a decade since the human genome was first cracked, at a cost of a billion dollars. Today, you can have your own personal genome mapped for $99. True, we can’t yet fix everything we can find out about ourselves, but the first step to fixing what’s wrong is discovering what’s wrong. And what’s right, of course.
Ten years from now, this sort of science and technology will have completely reshaped our world, far more than whether Barack Obama or Ted Cruz wins the current political debates.
As I read this article, I thought about getting the DNA test/analysis, and I have to confess I felt a bit queasy. Maybe I don’t want to know?
Not very rational, but there it is.
