Isn’t it remarkable that, these days, you can hock a loogie in a test tube, send it off to a lab and discover your genetic make-up down to a fraction of a per cent?
It’s little wonder home DNA testing kits like 23andMe have exploded in popularity during the last couple of years, as folks seek to learn more about their ancestry.
Right now the 23andMe kit is reduced to just $99.99 (50% off) at Amazon US with free Prime shipping.
That’s cheaper than we’ve ever seen it.
As well as the detailed breakdown of your ancestry, this kit will alert you of any health risks you may be genetically disposed to. Scary? Perhaps. Good to know? Absolutely.
All-in-all you’ll get 75+ online reports on your ancestry, traits and health.
Once you receive the kit, you simply spit in the tube (no blood, no needles), seal it up, ship it back to 23andMe and wait 6-8 weeks for an email.
Once that comes through, you’ll be able to create an online account and view the report.
