    Some insurance companies will pay for this type of stuff through your doctor.

    Or there's something about your diet. Eat red meat much? That could do it.

    This looks pretty cool though. I might just go for it.

    why isnt this a stardard test doctors are running now :ugh:? You would think the medical community would want this type of stuff in a patients records so you can be more on the look out for red flags of things that the patient is more susceptible to

    I've wanted to do that test for a while. I just don't have the money laying around for it.

    Science is good, but this smells like one of those things that says, "For another $59.95, we'll send you the results on your likelihood for broken bones or dental work. DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS VITAL INFORMATION!!!!!!!!!!!"

    And it can't predict your likelihood to be crushed under a semi on the freeway.

    Anyway, it will probably suggest that you do all the things you are supposed to do anyway. Eat healthy. Don't drink too much. Exercise. Bathe. But it probably won't say, "Use turn signals and do shoulder checks before changing lanes."

    Still looks interesting, though.
