The Best Of Our Knowledge #1264
We’ve talked a lot about genetic testing on this program over the past year or so. The amount of data that can come from the human genome seems to be growing by the day.
And there are companies that are using that data to market genetic tests for home use. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about a test called 23 and Me…and find out why the FDA has banned it from being used as a genetic health screen in the US.
We'll also spend time outside a classroom, as a school fights what it calls Nature Deficit Syndrome. And we’ll spend an academic minute with garbled communications on social media.
