Then, is 23andMe or ancestry better?
Unlike Ancestry, 23andMe does have FDA approval as a risk screener for a handful of genetic conditions and diseases -- if you're primarily interested in DNA testing for this purpose, 23andMe is the better choice.
Furthermore, is CRI genetics legitimate?
CRI Genetics is fraudulent in their reports and in their promises to provide data to customers. An ethnicity test - accurate or not - is not data. It is only an interpretation of data. Refund of all fees paid for test kits.
What are the disadvantages of genetic testing?
Some disadvantages, or risks, that come from genetic testing can include:

- Testing does not eliminate a person's risk for cancer.
- Results in some cases may return inconclusive or uncertain.
What are the 3 types of genetic disorders?
There are three types of genetic disorders:
- Single-gene disorders, where a mutation affects one gene. Sickle cell anemia is an example.
- Chromosomal disorders, where chromosomes (or parts of chromosomes) are missing or changed.
- Complex disorders, where there are mutations in two or more genes.
