Many other findings in gene-environment interactions raise similar ethical, legal, and social issues about whether society should focus on labeling individuals as susceptible to a given disease or simply reduce environmental exposures for everyone.
These ethical, legal, and social issues are becoming increasingly more complex as new genetic and molecular techniques are used to study environmental toxicants and their potential influence on human and ecologic health.
With the increased impact of genetic research on human health comes a growing awareness of the ethical, legal, and social issues related to the involvement of human subjects.
As a result of a recent request for applications, the NIEHS and the NHGRI jointly are supporting nine projects covering a broad array of ethical, legal, and social issues related to environmental and gene-environment research in the community.
The ultimate mission of the research program is to support research and education activities that 1) promote genetic privacy and fair use of genetic information, 2) encourage the responsible integration of new genetic information and technologies into clinical and nonclinical settings, 3) ensure that genetic research is conducted in an ethical manner, and 4) improve public and professional understanding about genetics, genome technology, and related ethical, legal, and social issues.

Various articles on genetic privacy, discrimination against gene therapy, and genetics in the courtroom are referenced under the Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues heading, which mentions that 3-5% of the HGP's annual budget goes toward studying the ethical, legal, and social implications surrounding the availability of genetic information.
This year the CEEH added a new Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues (ELSI) Core.
In this paper we highlight several ethical, legal, and social issues raised by the EGP.
The most immediate ethical, legal, and social issues raised by the EGP relate to the protection of individual research participants (14-16).
Other immediate ethical, legal, and social issues relate to the breadth of the consent obtained in connection with EGP studies (24).
