Recent studies have shown that two genetic variants may be associated with increased or decreased risk of colorectal cancer with aspirin intake: - rs2965667 on chromosome 12, near the MGST1 gene, and rs16973225 on chromosome 15, near the IL16 gene. This genetic test will determine which form of the two genetic markers (rs2965667 and rs16973225) are present.
Everyone wants perfect skin, without any blemishes, cellulite or wrinkles. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have that perfect skin, and you can at least partly blame your genetics. This DNA Skin Health test will identify genetic variants that influence your skin’s health and appearance.
