Do you know that we are who we are because of our genes?
Genes are made up of DNA which carry genetic information that determine our traits such as height and skin colour. They determine who we are, what we look like, and how we behave. The genes we are born with play a very important role in our growth, development, and health.
Every individual carries genetic predispositions that can adversely affect us in some way. Our genetic predispositions vary from person to person. This may be why a person who does not smoke could be diagnosed with lung cancer while a heavy smoker lives a perfectly healthy life.
By determining the genetic variants present in our DNA and genes, we may get a handle on how our genes function and how they impact our bodies. We can then recommend ways to improve our health, wellness, and vitality.
This is where TrueYou genetic services that determine the types of genetic variants present in our entire set of DNA can help.
