23andMe researchers study a lot of things, including the genetic reasons some of us cry more easily than others. Are you quick to shed a tear? http://23me.co/MMu0Jt

A team of British researchers is taking a closer look at how starchy foods like root vegetables influenced the evolution of the human brain. Learn more about how our ancient ancestors fueled their bodies: http://23me.co/nhO4iq
Once ancient humans learned to cook, starchy foods could have given them a calorie bump that fueled the evolution of the human brain, British researchers argue in a new paper.

Introduction
23andMe was founded to empower individuals and develop new ways of accelerating research. The members of 23andMe have come together because we believe in the combined potential of genetics and the Internet to have a significant, positive impact.

23andMe is a web-based service that helps you read and understand your DNA. After providing a saliva sample using an at-home kit, you can use our interactive tools to shed new light on your distant ancestors, your close family and most of all, yourself
