Letter: All insured

The insurance industry should be warned that genetic testing could create an underclass of uninsurables ("Letting the gene out of the bottle", Travel and money, 23 February). If the problem continues to develop, a recent study of ours predicts that it may be necessary for governments to step in to take care of them. Insurance companies could be cut out in the process.

It is imperative they find a way to provide for these people.
