FDA approves first direct-to-consumer genetic risk tests

Excerpt: "(HealthDay)—The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday approved the first direct-to-consumer genetic health risk tests.

Known as the 23andMe Personal Genome Service Genetic Health Risk tests, they assess a person's inherited risk for 10 diseases and conditions.

"Consumers can now have direct access to certain genetic risk information," said Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. "But it is important that people understand that genetic risk is just one piece of the bigger puzzle, it does not mean they will or won't ultimately develop a disease."

The tests may be used to "make decisions about lifestyle choices or to inform discussions with a health care professional," the agency said in a news release.

The tests derive DNA from a saliva sample, which is then screened for more than 500,000 genetic variants that are associated with an increased risk for the following diseases or conditions:

  • Parkinson's disease;
  • Alzheimer's disease (late onset);
  • Celiac disease;
  • Antitrypsin deficiency (Alpha-1), a disorder that raises the risk of lung and liver disease;
  • Primary dystonia (early onset), a movement disorder involving involuntary muscle contractions and other uncontrolled movements;
  • Factor XI deficiency, a blood clotting disorder;
  • Gaucher disease (type 1), an organ and tissue disorder;
  • Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase deficiency; a red blood cell condition;
  • Hemochromatosis (hereditary), an iron overload disorder;
  • Thrombophilia (hereditary); a blood clot disorder"
My comment: Over 500,000 genetic variants associated with an increased risk for certain genetic diseases is a catastrophy for the theory of evolution. Modern science has found about 10 million SNP's in the human DNA at population level. The Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) just released a report after analyzing the genome of over 60,000 individuals. No beneficial random mutations were reported. Not a single one. The number of analyzed genes was about 1.2 BILLION!

The evolutionary theory is a major lie. Organisms are not evolving. Information is only degraded and lost. Don't get misled.
