The Genomics of Cardiac Disease Risk

Who knows how much investment is going into finding the
genes behind various chronic diseases? 
Fixing what is broken always seems to take more energy and effort than
preventing the disease damage in the first place… an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure.  As a listened to
