Well, it's here. Cellf do-it-yourself genetic test kits are the first over-the-counter products for investigating your own health conditions. They use DNA analysis to recommend diet and lifestyle changes.
The products are "comprehensive all-in-one kits" that test for specific conditions, including bone health, heart health, detoxification, inflammation, and insulin resistance -- containing swabs for taking DNA samples from your cheeks, a questionnaire about eating and exercise habits and a prepaid mailing tube.
You submit your results in the mail, and in about three weeks, you receive a confidential 30-day report that details your personal "genetic variations" and offers specific remedies for your deficiencies, from nutritional supplements to workout regimens.
