Look into what they can interpolate about you once they combine your genetics with your ad profile, insurance data, personal information anywhere. There's a huge privacy debate surrounding these DNA kits and who exactly has access.

This is awesome for personalizing your nutrition if you use a secondary tool from Promethease or Rhonda Patrick's tool form 23andme.com. As an immigrant I personally do not have a very interesting background for the historical stuff, but the genetic information is awesome. You can see if you need higher doses of vitamin D or if you should be careful cooking your meat at high temperatures (if you do not have good genetics of breaking down the free radicals from higher temp cooking). I also am lucky for not having known genetic diseases and am less likely to get Alzheimer's which lets me sleep better at night.

It sounds like you have used the service. I am interested in buying but skeptical that it might be like reading my horoscope.. can you sell me some more?

What do you want to know? I bought the 23andme kit for $199 and was happy with it. It gave me peace of mind regarding my genetics (one of my grandfathers had dementia and I do not have signs of getting it) and it helped me tailor my vitamin D and E intake.

I feel you on this one. It was one of the biggest concerns that I had before getting my genes tested. Canadian users have special restrictions on 23andme data, and you can also have them destroy your sample once they profile it. Whether or not you trust them to abide by the restrictions is up to you. I personally think that in our lifetimes most citizens will have their genetics profiled and available to the government, which is why I went ahead and got mine done for nutrition purposes. It definitely poses a privacy concern and you should make your decision knowing that.

Does it give you lifetime access to your information? If so, does it get updated with new findings, such as new family member connections?

Facebook and Prime Photo for facial recognition.

Now all they need is my DNA to clone an army of me.
