    Great show–thank you. There’s an affordable way to get loads of genetic information, including the mutations and conditions the doctor mentioned: 23andme.com is now $100 ($20 off that for additional family members), and you get raw data (located in account info.), which can be downloaded, then upload it to geneticgenie.org, and you can find out about MTHFR and many, many mutations and nutritional needs, etc.
