I'm just curious...

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Has anyone done DNA testing to see how they stack up in the area of metabolism, fitness, and health? I've done it in regard of ancestry, but not the other. I'm curious now. But wondered about others before I do it.

    I've heard of it but no I've never tried it. Hopefully you can get some answers. Maybe try asking on the Community Feed.

    Never done either and like most others this is first I heard of the health one. I find it interesting that the police are able to access the DNA from the testing and able to match for criminals or even if a relative of a criminal. Bet nobody wanted by the police thought about that when checked for ancestry. And they would have no idea if someone related to them did the test. Kind of a Big Brother world?

    Mixed feelings. We really don't know the accuracy of the aspect of testing so a false reading could send someone down a dark and expensive path. Plus, I'm concerned about how insurances could handle the info. Don't assume it's private and the insurances could claim pre-existing conditions.

    Not sure what you'd gain.

    Never heard of that. They say longevity has more to do with lifestyle than heredity so I figure the same with DNA testing. Since ancestry testing brings in millions, smart business people offering this. I know my metabolism is slow and my fitness improves when I stay active. I don’t know if I would learn anything of value from the test. Interesting concept though.
