DNA Testing for Sports
In the second biggest sports story in Chicago (after the White Sox rout of Boston), the Chicago Bulls basketball team traded Eddy Curry to the New York Knicks. The Bulls had wanted Curry to take a DNA test to check for a certain heart condition and Curry refused so finally they decided to trade him to the Knicks who will not require the DNA test. I understand the Bulls' position but testing DNA for diseases for employment opens up a big can of worms. Shades of Gattaca?
