"Myriad’s effort to patent human DNA was one of the worst manifestations of the inequality in access to health, which in turn is one of the worst manifestations of the country’s economic inequality." - Joseph Stiglitz.  Healthcare, intellectual property, and gross inequality: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/14/how-intellectual-property-reinforces-inequality/?hp
