Genetics Testing for Cancer


               In this article the authors talk about how genetic testing could help an individual see what they are at risk for, diseases or cancer. Although only 5-10% of cancer is genetic, it can be found through testing. However testing can be expensive and may not 100% be accurate. Although insurance can bring it down it will not be enough. Which is why scientists and colors are currently fighting to have more funding for these tests. In my opinion I think these tests are beneficial and could potentially save lives. More funding and healthcare should be provided so these tests can be given out to more people.
