Scientists Push Back Against Booming Genetic Pseudoscience Market

The premise behind Yes or No Genomics is simple. Genetic disease is typically caused by a variation in at least one of the many thousands of genes in the human genome, so knowing whether your DNA code contains variants could suggest whether your health is at risk. And for just $US199 ($254), the scientists at Yes or No Genomics can use special technology to determine that.
