The FDA has approved 23 and Me's personal genetic test for some diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, Sickle Cell Anemia and other diseases. The tests assess genetic risk for the conditions but don't diagnose them. I have asked an expert in this field, Dr. Christopher Scharer, a geneticist and molecular biologist at the Emory University School of Medicine, to join us. This show should help us understand this technology and give us the tools to decide whether this knowledge would be of benefit to us individually.
