Online Genetic Testing Appears to Have Benefits

formation, the study said.

According to the researchers, the participants said they found the test results to be believable, trustworthy, easy to understand, relevant and important. Those who learned they had a higher genetic risk for lung cancer did have a short-term decrease in confidence that quitting smoking could reduce their risk of lung cancer. However, all the participants decided to use at least one of several smoking cessation aids.

The study is published in the July issue of the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

"Genetic information is complex, and there is a risk that providing unfiltered information will result in heightened worry and misinterpretation of results," Jamie Ostroff, chief of behavioral science services at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and an editorial board member of the journal, said in the news release.

"This pilot study found no harm in undergoing these tests and underscores the importance of conducting future research as to how to best educate smokers about gene-environment risks," Ostroff said.
