Examines the consequences of applying the qualifier "genetic" to health and to health care. Raises similar questions about the effects of identifying certain health matters as being about gender, as distinct from sex, pointing out how the increasing marketing of, and markets for, genetics and women's health, constantly twist the meaning of these words as well as co-opt the concept of "choice."
