Because it’s never too early or too late to ensure we’re on the right path with our health, we’re using the Healthy Aging Month campaign to take a look at the important benefits of proactive genetic testing. With the ability of whole genome sequencing (WGS) to provide access to our entire DNA sequence, we have access to our own personal guidebook that details the unique aspects of our DNA that can impact our health throughout our lifetime.
Each week we’ll feature an in depth look at an aspect of proactive genetic testing. We’ll cover a variety of topics including:
Cancer prediposition variants: looking beyond BRCA1 and BRCA2
Disease risk: there’s more than just cancer to consider
We hope you’ll follow along throughout the month.
