23andMe is just one of the many companies that use a consumers DNA to report to them their ancestry and heritage. The above picture is the device a consumer spits in and sends away to the company. Now the company wants to use the DNA in order to provide consumers with do-it-yourself diagnostic testing. At first, this service was stopped by the FDA in 2013 because they feared consumers would use the information to make real life medical decisions. The FDA finally allowed 23andMe to tell consumers “whether they possess genetic mutations (Maxmen, 2017)” that are known to cause certain medical conditions. Some of the conditions include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, coeliac and thrombophilia. The downsides of this service include consumers reading these results without the help of a genetic counselor or doctor.
