You can also ask questions on there that someone (maybe the company?) can answer.

Here are links to 2 podcasts, one with the CEO of 23 and me & one with a PCP with a geneticist background. I found both very interesting.

I will definitely check them out. Overall positive or negative?

Answered Dec 25, 2017    reply

Definitively positive. It’s very clear on what 23 and Me provides and what it doesn’t. Also explains why most physicians just aren’t there yet in acceptance mostly because they don’t know what to do with the data. Genetics is an extremely complex field but they’re seeing it as a big part of the future of medicine.

It was really good!!


Answered Dec 25, 2017    reply

It was interesting but none of the doctors give it any validity. They check certain segments that 23andme does not cover.
I get my medical genetics results in a couple of weeks. I’ll find it interesting to compare.
