    Population carrier screening for cystic fibrosis could soon be a reality, but we know very little about people's attitudes towards genetic disease in general or cystic fibrosis in particular. This paper reports a study which aimed to investigate some of these attitudes and also to explore feelings about CF carrier screening given its practical limitations. The results are discussed in the context of earlier studies which have not raised these practical issues.
