Has anyone done the 23andme 'genotyping' thing?
I think it was RedApple who originally gave me the link many months ago in one of my blogs....well, I kept going back to it and now at its cheapest price I thought I'd have a go at it and ordered 2 kits, one for myself and one for my son
Some people may feel it is a 'waste of money/time', some 'may' be worried about what they can find, some may find it 'fun' etc
I think for the most of it I will find it 'fun' and for a little bit I hope it will be helpful as it tells you if you are likely to have a reduced or heightened response to certain drugs for example (not all though) and one has to take the 'increase risks' with a pinch of salt...I mean one can be high risk for diabetes but does not mean you will develop it, or you may be low risk so 'sit back' and eat donuts and then develop it HAHAHAHAHA
I mean....what our genes say is also highly influenced by what we do with our bodies and life right?
Still, I think I'll have some fun with it, our kits arrive on Monday via DHL and then I'll send them back the next day, it takes up to 6 weeks for the results
