Diet based on your genetics?

It seems that everywhere I turn there is something about genetic engineering. On every milk carton it says ‘from cows not treated with rBST’. I hear about flies that glow in the dark. I keep wondering when they are going to turn all this into something useful that I can use.

I think I have found something. This company Interleuken Genetics has a test they sell for $149. It uses a cheek swab to and tests your cells to tell you what kind of diet you should be on.

I think this is just the beginning. I can imagine Weight Watchers making this part of their standard package, where they offer this test if you sign up for an annual package. Or imagine using this on kids to get them started on “their diet plan”

This is the kind of useful science that we should applaud.
