Produktbeschreibung
In contrast, as the essays make clear, the Human Genome Project, conducted in accordance with the highest ethical standards, has the potential to make dramatic positive contributions to the health of all human beings. Members of minority communities in particular - who statistically are at high risk of adverse health outcomes in the United States - have much to gain from innovative medical diagnostics and therapies that will result from the study of human genetics. Therefore, if we are to benefit fully from this new knowledge, it is vital that the distrust, scepticism and misconceptions relating to genetics research be overcome. This is a provocative collection for scholars, students, researchers and community leaders involved with minority and public health issues.
