Genetic testing today is mainstream, marketing to consumers who want to know where in Europe they came from or what types of hereditary diseases they could develop. For around $200 you can trace your family tree to learn your origins or identify genetic abnormalities that could signal disease.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can affect almost anyone of any age, showing itself like a bad cold in adults and older children. But in younger children, particularly infants, it can become something much worse.
Very many lives may someday depend on the work of researchers like Tony Kim. He’s fighting atherosclerosis, the foremost cause of coronary artery disease, which is America’s single greatest killer.
