Do You Want to Know What 23andme Knows About You?
23andme is billed as a leading health and ancestry DNA firm. I have held onto the kit for a few weeks but today I finally registered my kit online.
The process officially begins once your barcode is registered. After reading the privacy agreement I started to procrastinate again. The idea makes me a bit nervous. Why that is, well there are several reasons. Rather than feel as though I will be empowered by this information, I feel fearful of the unknown. Because in addition to ancestry information, 23andme takes an additional step forward. It also reports on the other 22 genes and gives health information, thus the name, 23andme.
I am not certain what I will do with this information. But I am moving forward. There is much to share about this software and how it slices and processes health information. By Monday I will mail my saliva into the company and I will keep you posted.
How do you feel about genetic and health testing?
