Very interesting, but I though insurance companies wouldn't pay for it unless there was a family history.......do you think that will change like the recommendation for MRIs?

I believe the area of genetics will really take off in the future healthcare. I recently saw the June 18 issue of Forbes magazine which had a large section on this topic and it was obviously targeted to future investors. Where there is money to be made is where there may be some progress in treatments as well (one would hope). All I know about insurance companies is that they do not part with their money unless they are made to do so. They will want some hard core statistics before they will make a change IMO. Joann
