    i spent some money and it turns out i am white enough to have white privilege but have only enough African DNA to say NIG, not not GER or have a sense of rhythm,


    but what can i do with my file?


    oh i also have a Neanderthal trait that means i have less back hair, someone should tell the forest on my back this.

    So what does this entail? I've been thinking of giving it a go, but not sure how to justify the cost.

    ok i did a bit of extra research
    apart from learning only a bit of stuff on 23andme that i already knew.

    but the data file, i uploaded it to https://promethease.com/ and found out i need to eat alot less sugar and less bad fats and probably run a bit more. it told me that because of a gene i have i am 99% to have a version of blue eyes, with only one person recorded on 23andme saying they have brown eyes and this gene.

    if money is a issue dont do it, if you are going to do it keep a eye out for when they do 20% off for days like st patricks day and stuff, and i think it is a good tacky gift for a relative who you have no idea what to buy for them (ie me, people just give me cash now or food)

    also keep in mind this isnt sequencing

    might be a good gift for the whole family or to find out why your kid has red hair

    Don't you sign away the rights to your genes and further genetic testing? Also, if we suddenly get a tyrannical international government, all your DNA will already be on file?

    Bought one of these kits and never mailed it in (you relinquish control of your sequencing when you grant permission to test).

    You should check out http://geneticgenie.org/

    If you have your 23 and me results check out foundmyfitness.com for some very interesting nutrigenomics and other analyses.
