Guys guys guys! This is so exciting...a few months ago I bought myself a 23andme kit to get my DNA genotyped. The results are finally starting to trickle in and I had to share two things right away:
1. Genetically, I am at a decreased risk for celiac disease. I find this to be hilarious and will continue avoiding gluten like the plague. Environment matters!
2. I officially have the allele for lactase persistence! So it's kind of a confirmation that my paleo + high-quality dairy eating plan is a good one. Not really telling me anything I didn't know, but it is cool to see the genetic data agree with reality.
Oh man, I am going to have sooooo much fun looking through all of this! At least it's keeping my mind off of tomorrow's (minor) surgery. Yay data!
