    Default Have you ever had your DNA tested?

    I was a bit surprised at my results.

    I always thought I had more English than Irish ancestry. But according to my results, it's the other way around, although my bloodline and surname are Anglo-Saxon.

    Ireland and Scotland: 71%
    England, Wales, and Northwestern Europe: 29%

    That does not sound right, how can they give you a percentage for a geographical location from your DNA?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I've managed to stay out of trouble with the law, although I was a bit wild in my youth.

    It's where your ancestors came from. Were they Gaelic Celts or Anglo-Saxons?

    The Brythonic people (Welsh, Cornish, and Strathclyde Britons) have mixed so much with the Anglo-Saxons that they have difficulty in determining the DNA.

    They are not yet able to separate Irish Gaelic Celtic DNA from Scottish Gaelic Celtic DNA. The Gaelic Scots came from Ireland to western Scotland from around 500 to 600 AD).

    But they can separate Gaelic Celtic (Irish and western Highland Scottish) from English/Welsh/lowland Scots (lowland Scots are descended from the Angles and Strathclyde Britons).

    Dudes I warned everyone here about DNA tests. They can’t really prove shit about your heritage. They compare existing DNA of everyone’s sample. In order to be accurate they would need to go back thousands of years. Also, once your DNA is in the system law enforcement has used it and got family members for crimes, familial DNA. Now your DNA is out there forever. @Freedom I’m surprised at you now the Israeli government has you DNA and is laughing at you. Also look up bio hacks. It’s scary stuff, god bless @Freedom it’s been nice knowing u

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE
    Sales of direct-to-consumer DNA testing kits rose sharply in 2017, driven in part by large advertising budgets and a growing interest in discovering ancestral lineage
    Although only one company is approved to share information about medical risk for some health conditions, nearly all companies share the raw data; research finds nearly 40 percent of medical data from these tests may be false positives
    Clinical confirmation is vital before undergoing further tests or treatments based on DNA testing from at-home test kits as these tests were never intended for medical use
    Your DNA contains profoundly personal information about your health, personality and family history, which may be used to discriminate against you in the workplace, affect your ability to acquire health insurance and is often sold to research companies

    Damn I lost the link for the article but I posted like 37 references to the innacuracy and safety concerns of these things. I see now my warnings were in vain. I see now why everyone is leaving. Soon even @Freedom our last bastion of hope, truth and enlightenment or gone. That’s it I’m done with this place

    Who does this by mail testing. Seems very open to compromise. Ever take a minute to realize how much DNA we make public just by taking out the trash. DNA testing is increasingly big in pets, everything from inherited diseases to busting dogos and owners for wrongful pooping . No shit. There's a company that offers genetic testing for landlords. They can log info into a registry. So no more blaming the cat.
