New gene announced...
I'm going to hazard a guess...
- go to 23andme to check status (of all nine)
- Devise a menu to defeat the disease
- Wait 50 years for modern medicine to catch up.
(and relax, obviously it's a goof, but the point is valid)

I think with 23andme and similar services becoming more popular we aught to have a conversation about the difference between predisposition and predeterminism. I don't see them as being equal and don't think that identifying a gene that predisposes you to a certain condition should be actionable. Unless I could establish a direct causal link to a certain gene and a certain condition that predicts it with near 100% certainty, I would have no interest in knowing my theoretical dispositions.
So if I were to answer you question in one word: nothing.
