Good morning Ken and all,
The bit of info came in to me upon its release so I flipped a query to Penn State and Harvard Medical School profs, who by the way are 23andme subscribers, both involved in molecular genetics, and they did not even blink.
This is a 'wait and see' situation. FDA's (The Food and Drug Administration ) concern is with the 'health' portion of the test which is comprehensive. If I have some specific genetic predispositioning to avoid certain behaviors is wrong?
The FDA is also attempting to control 'over the counter' vitamin sales, requiring a 'medical prescription'. . .
C'mon! To take my D3 tabs or daily multiple vitamin. . . C'mon! The medical profession is now copying prevention methods and organic food intake as we 'health nuts' did in the 1950's. And still do!
. . . Otto
