following 23andme on twitter is depressing..
as a future clinician, tweets like this creep me out:
My 23andMe results are in: the worst thing I have to worry about is my 61% chance of Venuos Thromboembolism.
so is that.. a risk for superficial venous thromoboembolism? or risk for a deep venous thromboembolism (DVT)? or even a pulmonary embolism (PE)? of which the latter two are, i’d say, pretty serious…
its especially weird especially when the response by @23andme is:
meh. who am i to judge… lowly genetic counseling student.
