Sometimes I fantasize that I am a descendant of the Atlanteans LOL. I wonder if any lost civilizations would have had a specific gene expressions. Like Ancestry can tell the percentage of DNA in each individual from all parts of the world. They all have been identified, but I wonder if in some people they detect DNA that is not common or unidentifiable.  I am about to send my sample to 23 and me.

Oooooooooooooooooooh!!  DON'T DO IT!!

23andme is about to give access of their entire genetic database to the pharmaceutical industry.

https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/xwkaz3/23andme-sold-access-to-your-dna-library-to-big-pharma-but-you-can-opt-out

Not a chance in hell I'd ever do one of these genetic tests.  You couldn't pay me enough.

That's ok, they will use this info for research. No harm will be done for the people who gave the samples, but if they find traits or patterns to figure out how to create more effective medicine then that would help humanity overall. Lets face it, as much as I believe they are looking for maintenance and not cures on purpose, medicine still helps millions of people. Every person in this planet had used some form of pharmaceutical products and have found benefits. As far as making this database available to the government, still ok with that. I am not planning to commit crimes and be afraid that I will be caught that way.

I can see where that information could be a boon to R and D plus perhaps explaining our origins. But there is also high risk value as well. I can see discrimination of people with certain markers for traits or diseases. Insurance companies would likely want this information.

But would be cool to know 'who I am' so to speak so might do it anyway. I figure at some point they'll be using DNA info with or without our permission every time we visit a doctor or hospital or even the Blood Bank. Like everything else it's just a chance you take.

But boy I wonder how much hounding I'll get once they know I'm part dolphin. LOL

I think if the technology was available at the start of WW2 and Hitler did his DNA test, there wouldn't have been a war at all haha.

I am not afraid of discrimination, as we are becoming acceptant of all kinds of things, that even 50 years ago would have been taboo. As far as insurance companies checking your profile, the scientists themselves are warning people when they do their health DNA profile to NOT take into serious consideration any possible positive traits for certain diseases possibilities because these traits that they have studied so far are based on a small number of groups, and also factors such as lifestyle, environment and eating habits strongly influence your DNA predisposition and overall health.

Research... right up until the Insurance Industry gets their hands on it.
Then you'll be refused insurance simply because you have a genetic abnormality or a greater chance of <such and such> disease...
Mark my words, it'll happen.

It already does occur. MJ had 2 different forms of Cancer, totally independent of each other. They wanted to do genetic tests as well. We found out that the outcome of those tests would actually be accessible by the Insurance Companies and MJ's sons and their kids all the way down the line would be effected by it. We said, "no thanks"!

 They always have good selling points and try to tell you that they care about you, just like Car commercials try to tug at the heart strings, but in the end, they are a business. The medical community considers people "statistics". They gave MJ 8 months to live, two years ago, even if she had Chemo, which she refused. The Cancer went away by itself, without medical intervention. She did stop smoking, stopped eating sugar and ate healthier though. She also began reading books on Spirituality. But the biggest thing was, she didn't "buy in" to their diagnosis at all. She never gave up or gave in to it.

Thanks for your input everyone. I haven't sent the sample yet, so I will hold off and think about it. I'm just so curious to know which parts f the world my DNA originates from. I am predominantly Eastern European, but I wonder if I have middle eastern DNA since our country was under Turkish occupation for over 500 years.
