"Are you FOR personalized medicine or not?"
"Nor should dated links that no longer apply to the fast evolving and current business/economic climate, technologies and law(s) in differing American States and the international sector be fused - adding to the confusion for neophytes...like me...who, though we are not of your august standing...deserve better from you.

"Are only physicians capable of avoiding conflicts of interests when they choose to participate in the business sector???"
No, no one is all that capable these days of avoiding conflicts of interests. That is why we declare them on CMEs we give, or in academic positions. It is this transparency that is needed. Do I own a DTC company? No. Do I make money from DTC testing? No. Would I make money off Genetic testing done in my office? No, not off the test.
"For those of us who are not physicians, bankers or biotech experts/lawyers...though your posts are always entertaining and provocative fun...confusing."
