Diabetes and Obesity
A popular area of research is to determine genetic causes of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disease, depression and any other illness or condition that is plaguing our society. Proposed genetic solutions will result in expensive and profit-driven procedures that do not solve the primary cause of the problem. This area of research ignores the fact that often our genetic code does not determine health outcomes and it will not solve the problems of our society's rapidly failing health. Frequently the problem is not that complicated.
