Is It Safe To Have Personal DNA Testing?
DNA consulting and testing has become a popular trend with many health-conscious people. The primary purpose of this technology is to help people discover any potential for health problems early on so that they may begin integrating preventative measures, thereby reducing their risk of disease. New technology has made it possible to root out burgeoning genetic health issues and their rate of probability. To many people, it sounds like a reliable predictor for disease, and so far, it appears to be as good as it sounds, much like a genetic horoscope.

Baroda Clinical Lab Helps You Understand Inherited Blood Diseases and Some Types
A disease, by definition, is a disorder of structure or function in an organism that produces specific symptoms or signs to indicate its presence. Inheritance, in terms of biology, is the passing of characteristics, good or bad, from parents to its off-spring. Inherited diseases are the passing of bad characteristics from generation to generation.

DNA mutation genetic disorder
Most genetic disorders result from defects in single genes and many different procedures for examining genetic material have been developed. These procedures reveal an immense amount of knowledge about how changes in the genetic material can lead to various kinds of health issues. DNA tests, normally used in paternity tests determination can provide more information than about genetic compositions. Chromosomes are made of one special molecule called DNA, which is the genetic material of which all genes are composed. There are techniques that identify the chromosome on which the gene is located and how they work.

2009 Science Report on Genetic Disease Released by Cystinosis Research Foundation
Researchers of the genetic disease Cystinosis report encouraging news. The Cystinosis Research Foundation has published the third edition of its Science Report, which is designed to provide updates on cystinosis research under way and includes new abstracts of the 12 cystinosis grants issued in 2008. Cystinosis is a rare and fatal metabolic genetic disease that afflicts about 2,000 children worldwide. The CRF Science Report is available at

Adapting to Life with the Risk or Reality of Genetic Disease: Genetic Counselors Suggest Ways to Help Patients Cope
If you are afflicted with a genetic disease -- or at risk of developing one -- how do you handle it? Do you tell your loved ones? What is the best way to cope? If your loved one has a genetic disorder, how do you best adapt?
