When it comes to dieting, there's a lot to take into account, however with 23andMe, consumers can get a greater understanding of what will and won't work for their specific body types.
As NBC News reports, "23andMe has genotyped more than 2 million customers to determine ancestry and genetic health risks," helping them to create balanced diets for themselves that will help to prevent specific health issues from arising sooner.
To use 23andMe, consumers simply order their saliva collection kit online, follow the instructions and spit in the provided tube, and then mail it back to the company's lab in the pre-paid package that comes with it. After about six to eight weeks, 23andMe sends a detailed report over email.
