The service no longer provides a Personal Genome Service that includes a
health report addressing disease risks! What a huge disappointment.
This was the whole reason my health care practitioner recommended this
service. The information provided is merely for party tricks rather
than useful data. Are you looking to see what diseases you might be
predisposed towards? If so, 23 and Me will be of no help. Save your
money until they resume offering these reports. Oh, and just 2-3 days
after they receive your spit, you will not be able to get a refund – not
even a partial one!
Hi, I plan on taking the 23andME in 2015 however I am not concerned regarding diseases I might get. It's 100% ancestry. My sister took the test & we already had a professional genealogist perform my Mothers side however she hasn't opened 1 link. I on the other hand am more social & will open ever link.
What about gene therapy? Will you be offering cosmetic gene therapies in the future? 😉 I'd be interested in being a guinea pig!
