“The Food and Drug Administration has ordered Google-backed genetic test maker 23andMe to halt sales of its personalized DNA test kits, saying the company has failed to show that the technology is supported by science.”
Their other concern is that this may be mistaken as medical diagnoses, which it isn’t. It simply shares what your DNA may, MAY have in store for you. If you’ve got the BRCA gene for increases risk of breast or ovarian cancer, maybe you should get screened more often. If you’re shown to have a sensitivity to certain anesthetic drugs, maybe your doctor will start you at a lower dose in surgery.
MAYBE. PERHAPS. None of this is definitive diagnoses or even probability. They’ve never claimed this, and say ALL over their website that this does not replace actual medical tests or screening. It’s simply information. Sometimes the FDA is just stupid. Either way, I’m glad I already got my test last Christmas.
