Question Everything

Hsien-Hsien Lei posts six questions that the American Clinical Laboratory Association suggests consumers ask before buying a genetic test. One is ask yourself if you are willing to take the time to understand what the test will be telling you and if the lab is CLIA-certified. Other questions add up to seeing if the tests passes the smell test -- if the claims seem to be too good to be true or the company is trying to get you to buy other products along with the test, something maybe amiss.
