Excerpt from blog article:

"In the age of the genomic revolution, personalised medicine and big data, debates such as this are amplified as we ask ourselves the questions: would we want to know if a family member carried a hereditary risk relevant to our own health or that of our children? And, would we ourselves want to risk upsetting our relatives if we found out that we carried an inherited disorder?"
