Government Moves To Oversee Genetic Tests Aimed At Consumers

During a stay at a resort two years ago, Carol Arand purchased $4,000 in genetic tests after a spa physician praised their potential to improve her health. If ever she got sick, Arand reasoned, she could take the results to her doctor. I hoped that this genetic fingerprint could be useful, she said.

I would not take any of those tests without being personally supervised by a medical geneticist and only if there was a specific condition about which I was worried because of family history.
