Abstract

Once upon a time, illness and disease were acts of God visited upon defenceless individuals. Now, science is able to map the interplay of genes, environment and lifestyle, allowing doctors to forecast our health and longevity with startling accuracy. But what if these resources were put in the hands of patients themselves? Might it inspire them to help, even heal themselves?
