Abstract: Advances in genetics create increasing possibilities of diagnosing and preventing genetic disease. In most countries, the community is poorly informed about the role of genetic factors in human disease and about genetic testing and its social, emotional, and ethical implications. School education about genetics may improve this situation. Students are, of course, the adults of the future and the potential users of the new genetic tests. To gain further insight into the perception of genetic risk of adolescents and their perception of the new genetic techniques and as a starting point for setting up an adequate information campaign in Flanders, we assessed the opinions and beliefs of students with regard to health, genetic diseases, genetic risk, and genetic testing.
