I think even that small risk is way worth it. This stuff can show if you're predisposed to Alzheimer's for example. Cancers, disorders, if you have any bad carrier genes that you will pass on to offspring etc.
Which is good to know so you can start screening and testing for for this stuff earlier in life. Also good to get done for kids so you know what they're in for.
That’s precisely why people shouldn’t do it... there’s no reason to believe that the current DNA sequencing by these companies have any actual predictive value, and it’ll lead to people getting additional, often unnecessary screening, driving up health care costs for everyone.
Sorry, not here to threadcrap, just wanted to give a reason instead of just mashing the downvote, which helps no one. Everyone’s capable of making their own decisions. Good luck man!
