The purpose of this assignment is to get students thinking about genetic links to cancer. As described in the chapter, the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes are tied to breast cancer risk.

The webpage above includes information on genetic results and insurance discrimination. After reviewing this webpage, answer the following questions:
- Would you be willing to undergo genetic testing to better understand your cancer risk? (yes I would, my aunt has breast cancer, my dad had lung and my grandad had lung) if you could incorporate that…
- Under what circumstances would you be willing to undergo genetic testing?
- Discuss the possible consequences of such results.
