Genome is the new word for advanment, would you pay for it?

I recently got my subscribtion copy to "Wired" magazine where i found myself reading the article over again just incase i missed something, yeah i learn new stuff all the time reading Wired or Money magazines but this is something that had me on the edge of my seat.

Pretty much a sum of the article is you paying to have your DNA examined, by that you can trace back through your ancestors and find your DNA traits (not like in middle school with the family tree BS)
By that you can find out what good traits you have and what bad traits you have, which leads to preventive care that can add maybe prevent your from a tumor, cancer, diabetes, etc
The bad part is you might find out that you are in great risk of certain things and you wouldnt want to know that because it might be weight on your shoulder.

I myself was scared to even think about it, but then again, your DNA is you and you can know....

(Im not a sales person or affiliated with any company mentioned in this thread, come on guys)

So here is the link, check it out, maybe goto Borders or your favorite book store and pick up a copy of this months issue of "Wired" it has a crazy cover but also mentions this topic on the cover.

Cost $1000

Just think that 5 years ago the humone genone project was finished, now this, and a accelerated movement into genotics for the future. I think its good, i mean electronics are cool and we can get 8gb in a card the size of a quarter, but genetics....
