Our Genetic Future

Nice round up of genetic news, mostly new biomarker research, at Genetics & Health blog. Honestly, you could do these things every day - the research is pouring out all over - and it signals two things to me.

1) We're only getting started here: all these 'associations' and 'possible targets' need to get borne out in future research several times over before any real therapies might emerge.

2) But that doesn't mean something hasn't shifted. No doubt we're well on the road to this 'third era' of medicine that I wrote about last week. It's going to be all risks, all the time.
