We've been talking about genetics a lot in my biology class and there's a topic that keeps coming up: Do people really need/ want to know? For example, if you could go to a hospital, have all of your genes mapped, and be told what the likelihood is for you developing cancer or other genetic diseases, would you do it? You may end up finding out that you have an incurable disease and never feel the same about yourself again and worry for the rest of your life, or you might find out that you're very likely to get breast cancer and be able to get it taken care of before it becomes a problem. Do you think people need to know?

I accept this debate, and from reading the opening point by my opponent that we are going to assume that misdiagnoses are not the issues, as it seems he wants to talk more about whether that knowledge is good, as opposed to whether the process is good.
