would the benefits of genetic profiling still outweigh the disbenefits? Explain.

Vincent states in the movie that “it’s illegal to discriminate – “genoism” it’s called – but no one takes the laws seriously.” This is in fact one of the standard criticisms of genetic profiling: if we have genetic data on people, then employers or insurance companies will use that data to minimize financial risk. Assuming that this will be true; would the benefits of genetic profiling still outweigh the disbenefits? Explain.
