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!

    DUDE THAT'S SO COOL! How much data did they give you? Do you think it was worth the money? It's something I've considered doing for a looooong time but haven't yet...
