For the study, University of Michigan researchers surveyed nearly 1,000 adults aged 50 to 64. Around nine in 10 adults believe genetic testing can shed light on their own health risks, and those of their children and grandchildren, the poll found. But roughly 40 percent feel a genetic test is unnecessary if a family’s medical history and risk factors are already known. While curious about their ancestry or health risks, the majority said they fear they’ll worry excessively if they learn they have genetic links to progressive diseases like macular degeneration.

Many experts are concerned about the appropriate use of genetic screening in populations.49 An important question in genetic screening is whether individuals really want to know the potentially worrisome truths about their genetic makeup.

Nonetheless, anyone considering genetic testing would be wise to learn as much about the test as possible— including who will have access to the results—and should discuss available state and local legal protections regarding

Screening for susceptibility genes undoubtedly will increase in the future, but there are ethical concerns about potential problems, such as medical insurance carriers hesitating to insure individuals with known genetic risks.

It is also possible that testing several genes together will provide more information about risk than any individual gene variant would confer.

Because the benefits of genetic testing are often modest, and the tests themselves are often imprecise in identifying risk, the test is generally discouraged.

  • it is insane that adhd wasnt mentioned. time blindness and procrastination are huge symptoms of it. time blindness means you know the future is coming, but it’s too vague to act on, so you put things off. procrastination occurs because of time blindness and a dysfunctional reward system in our brains that doesn’t reward us the same way other people’s brains do. just as tim says, everyone procrastinates. but when procrastination actively hurts you or ruins your life, it’s something to look into.

  • it would’ve been funny if there was some proof that he wrote a better paper because he was thinking about it all at one point in time

  • That was an interesting, amazing and property speak about procrastination, however, while he was speaking I was thinking about the exercise that I needed to do hahaha

  • Watching this is so surreal, Dr. Doudna was my Biology professor
    I feel like an idiot for not knowing who she was as my time as her student

  • And here I’m watching inbetween my python class. And commenting while this guy’s talking. And smiling about readers reaction on my comment. If they’re reading lol ��

  • This is a pretty ironic video for my LA teacher to assign… I waited until today to do the hw I’d been assigned… (This being one of them)

    Hey this is actually a lot more entertaining than I expected-

  • We have to watch this video (along with 10 others) for class tomorrow. I procrastinated the entire weekend. lol
    Even though, I follow TED talks all the time. Now I don’t enjoy it, just because it feels like “work”.

  • When she said Eugene desires love but he is reserved and afraid to open up. I was like wait he is a Capricorn sooo that makes sense us capricorn are always like to hide our emotions and stuff u know

  • Bah… I’m meant to be coding up a project and….. instant gratification monkey kicked in. What better way to feed it than Youtube?!

    It must be a sign! Chronic procrastinator:(

  • It’s strange, very strange that with billions and billions of neurons in our heads, we are still learning from bacteria. This is only modified copy cat..

  • the dangers of this technology is profound. Need more understanding before doing clinical application like below
