Very good article neverdem. I believe within the next ten years there will become a branch of medicine perhaps titled 'genetic medicine.' There are clearly differences in the races (and every thing in between) and the effectiveness of different medicines within that race...and I'm using the word 'race' as meaning a specific genetic signature. If you like this sort of 'stuff', read the below linked article: (It blows my mind)
The Neanderthal Theory

Are medical researchers going to start testing for particular gene markers? I hope so if they are going to go down this road of ancestry medicine. Places like the Caribbean where there is a lot of mixing of ethnicities for years and years will certainly make it warranted. To most people 'race' is more political in this country and to ask some people who are white if they are white, may say no I'm Indian or something. I don't know how different the races really are anyway.
