Genetic testing: Overload for health care?

Genetic testing programs could overwhelm health care systems, says new report

The good news from human genome research is that tests to determine people's genetic susceptibility to many common and deadly diseases are already, or soon will be, available.
The bad news, according to a University of Toronto report in the May 12 edition of the British Medical Journal, is that most health care systems risk being overwhelmed unless they start preparing for the complex and costly demands of genetic screening programs.
