+Graham Boreham you are right, sir. +James Farhat I've had one, but no health reports, sadly. It is possible to use 23andme for genealogy/finding cousins, but they do not make it easy. If you want health results, you have to order the test from outside of the US. If you want to use the test for genealogy, use FTdna instead. Just my opinion, of course.

Researchers recently found that two genes known for increasing the risk of breast and ovarian cancer may also play an important role in prostate cancer – a discovery that could lead to new treatments for some men. Read the full story from the Wall Street Journal. http://23me.co/aIZ7YB
Mutations in two genes well known for increasing the risk of breast and ovarian cancer may also play an important role in advanced prostate cancer, researchers said, an unexpected discovery that could lead to new treatments for some men with the disease.

genetics just got personal
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
