I’ve not really thought about DNA testing for fitness before. I know people get tested for all kinds of things. Usually allergies or to see if they carry certain genes that cause disease. However, I’m really interested in the use of DNA testing for fitness reasons.
DNA testing is all over the news lately; whether that’s because long-lost siblings and parents have been reunited, or a scaremongering article about personal information being shared, it’s astonishing just how intrigued the world is by the insights DNA can give us.
DNA is the genetic code contained in every cell in your body that makes you unique. A single strand of DNA contains genes which carry the instructions of how you’re built, why your body works in certain ways, how you differ from the person stood next to you, the dinosaurs that existed millions of years ago, and the banana you ate for breakfast – although apparently, we even have genes in common with them!
Although I like to think I’m in the know when it comes to DNA and testing. I haven’t really got a clue. I know it;s not all sci-fi and probes but still there is something a little daunting about the idea isn’t there?
The big problem with DNA testing is that it’s an industry that’s still relatively in its infancy, meaning there are a number of misconceptions and misunderstandings about how it works.
Luckily for the likes of you and I, Qlu Health have put together a great little read on the common misconceptions of DNA testing. This put my mind at rest and I can’t wait to get myself tested in the future to see what my genes uncover.
