Over the holidays, I did something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: starting tracing my ancestry. Because both AncestryDNA and 23andMe had DNA tests on sale for Cyber Monday, I decided to get both – and compare.
For the basics, they’re pretty much the same – with an edge to AncestryDNA because of its bigger database.
But the health reports addition to 23andMe blew me away. And it’s worth spending the extra money to unlock a huge amount of personal information you might not even be aware of yet. That’s scary and exhilarating – and makes you consider how much you really want to know.
Dang it, I already let it slip which one I like more. #fairandbalanced 🤷🏻♂️
