  • Lol @ $30 s/h. So the saving is only $14.

  • The longer you wait to do it, the better their database and the science behind it in general becomes. So you’re better off waiting. Although it’s already pretty cheap.

    • This is valid I suppose AncestryDNA been running for 8 years now and you always run the risk they might leverage their better database by increasing their price.

      • You're confusing ancestry DNA with ancestry subscriptions.

        The DNA test is not a subscription, it's a single payment.

    • Had our family all done a few weeks ago, as more and more people do it your own results update so don’t wait thinking the results you get will be old in a few months they just keep tweaking the results.

      It certainly turn my wife’s family upside down my wife thought she was mostly Italian, turns out German and 2% Italian 😳

    • Your DNA results aren't static. They email you when there are major changes to their database so you can check your updated profile. For example, just over a year ago they had a massive update to their Irish data from the addition of millions of county level records which allowed for incredibly granular detail.

    • Why?

    • Totally agree, and voice your opinion, but why vote this down, as such I voted negative on your comment.

      Like others below they give reasons why you need to be cautious with your DNA tests.

      I also hate the idea of Facebook, or Coca Cola, but while at worst I will make comments to that effect, I leave deals that others might like for whatever reason alone.

  • Wasn't this supposed to be pseudoscience? More of a question if anyone knows better?

    • The conclusions made about health is still mostly pseudoscience. Even with genes known to be directly linked to cancer we still don’t understand polygenetic factors, lifestyle contributors, and absolute risk.

      That said getting much better.

  • 🤣

  • I really value my privacy, so really don’t think giving your DNA to a private company is a good idea.

    Also the fact that they caught the Golden State Killer using this, really made me wary of how private your data is.

    But I ended up doing it with my family. I figured if I haven’t committed serial killings by now, or some Oceans Eleven style robbery … I probably don’t really need to worry about whether someone has a copy of my DNA sitting in a computer database somewhere.

    It was cheaper a couple of years ago, and I bought kits for my parents, in-laws, wife and kids. I wanted my kids to be more conscious of their heritage. They look “Australian”, yet they are half middle-Eastern.

    Anyway, it’s all pretty boring. Yeah, I’m 91% English, 9% Irish. I could have told you that by the fact that I get sunburnt on a full moon.

    My wife however found that she’s not related to her dad.

    We haven’t had that conversation with her parents. They are in their 80’s, and I can’t see much good coming from it.

    Good times.

    • A few years ago I watched a lecture from Yale and it was suggested American studies indicated between 1 in 5 to 1 in 10 children are fathered by someone other than the identified father. Thankfully my wife and several secret girlfriends are all faithful so I never have to worry.

      These tests will uncover much more than people realise.

    • wow.

    • I’m 91% English, 9% Irish

      Have you reviewed your results since the initial test? The results are periodicly reanalysed and you will see shifts in their estimates.

  • People should do their family a favour and avoid these gene detail donating schemes. Private Health Insurers are hunting this data down pretty aggressively and exemptions and premiums will happen for anything linked to an unfavourable set of the roughly 23000 genes we are all sharing.

    The states have many an article about just how bad the system has become.

  • Yes, I'm a very intelligent person and I want my DNA in a public database.

  • Cheaper at https://www.myheritage.com/dna if that’s your thing. $65 and free shipping for 2

  • The only one that own my dna is my baby mama

  • If this test reveals you have an increased risk of an untreatable medical issue, you will be obliged to disclose it in applications for life insurance.
    Seems enough reason to avoid for me.

    • They don’t give you any information like that.

      It’s some quasi-attempt at determining your origins, for you to tell people that you have 1% Zanzibar in your DNA, which probably explains why you like humus.
