The very recent news from California, for anyone who might possibly have somehow missed it, or closed their eyes to it:

3 DNA test firms get state OK
Friday, August 22, 2008
San Francisco Business Times
http://sanantonio.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/stories/2008/08/25/story8.html

Genetic testing firms DNA Direct, Navigenics Inc. and 23andMe Inc. have the state Public Health Department’s swab of approval.

The Bay Area companies are the first to get the state’s OK after 14 firms were told in June to halt their direct-to-consumer genetic testing services. State officials said they wanted companies to prove that the labs that receive DNA-laden cheek swabs or blood samples are certified by the state or federal government and that individual tests are ordered by a doctor.

The cease-and-desist letters came against the backdrop of a push to allow consumers access to their own medical information and to make treatment decisions for themselves — so-called personalized medicine. That’s put regulators, doctors, insurers, consumers and a new wave of biomedical technology companies — many of which reach consumers via the Internet — into conflict.

California has one of the most stringent genetic testing standards, requiring a doctor’s order for tests for a genetic predisposition to a disease.
