Well, the thing is, I'm not really worried about discrimination from my health insurance or anything because now they know about the rheumatoid and all, when you're already paying for these medications. But I guess it's something everybody has to decide for themselves. Is ther anything you'd get out of it by volunteering, like early access to new treatments?
: I was at DNA.com and I was reading about how they are collecting genetic information from people to do research on the links between diseases like RA and genes. What do you think about this? I am thinking of participating, what do I have to lose?
