You're psychic, Santino.  wink I just had a long chat about this yesterday (and the interesting announcements coming out of the MyHeritage meeting in Oslo for which we're all eagerly awaiting details) in San Antonio at the Texas State Genealogical Society annual conference. For those interested, here are a few additional links to the 23andMe story:

STAT News, 31 October: "FDA clears the first consumer genetic test for how well your medications may work — with caveats"

Time Magazine, 1 November: "23andMe Can Now Tell You How You May Respond to Some Drugs. But Experts Are Wary"

The Daily Mail, 1 November: "Confusion as FDA approves DNA test to tell you what drugs might work best for you - but warns patients not to choose medications based on results"

The Verge, 2 November: "23andMe’s genetic test for how you’ll react to medication is ahead of its time"

If you have an autosomal dna test done at any testing facility THEN upload the markers to Promethease . com -- for $12 they will compare your dna markers to the medical literature and give you a report.  I have done this, my husband has done this and my grand-daughter has done this...

The bottom line is you get HOW MEDICATIONS EFFECT YOU FOR ONLY $12...AND IT'S AVAILABLE NOW!!!
