    when choosing a DNA test, I wanted to go with the best. I can’t compare with the other big companies, but I knew that 23 and Me is a well established company.

    OMGosh!!

    1. I’d give them 100/100.

    2. It was SO EASY! Spit into a tube that came with a stamped, addressed mailer. All you had to do was supply or create an email address to send the results to.

    And 3: the results took about 3-5 weeks, not positive on the turnaround, but it was relatively quick.

    I opted for the enhanced medical info (to see if my genes carry any diseases/conditions—knowledge is power). And now I get notifications when people from my DNA profile enter the 23&Me database. So I get to see 2nd to 6th cousins, which is a trip. And I can contact them if they make their info public (to the site) or it can just come up as Anonymous. It’s all good. Highly recommend!!!!

    + PROS: Fast Easy Highly recommend!!!!
