On a side note, I should be receiving my DNA data soon! Check out the Genes For Good app on Facebook. The University of Michigan is conducting a study wherein you answer a few health surveys and they test your DNA…for free! They have a wealth of information regarding privacy if you’re concerned. It does take 2-3 months to get your results back. When I tested through 23andMe, I got results back 2 weeks to the day they received the kit at the lab. As soon as I know something, I’ll write about it!
