Complexity and Genetic Diagnosis

Came across this quote from Steve Pinker while doing some reading:

“Assessing the risks from genomic data is not like using pregnancy test kit with its bright blue line. It’s more like writing a term paper on a topic with a huge and chaotic research literature. You are whipsawed by contradictory studies with different sample sizes, ages, sexes, ethnicities, selection criteria, and levels of statistical significance.”
