Re: You need actual data on the incidence of medical conditions and risk factors
I am not a Doctor, so honest question:
Why would race be a necessary factor in an algorithm for treatment? I know some genetic groups have pre-dispositions to certain diseases (diabetes and kidney disease come to mind) but with more homogenization of populations (in the States at least) genetic testing should be done as a matter of course because visual indicators will lead to false assumptions. The results of preliminary testing could then be factored into the algorithm.
