    23andMe Granted First FDA Authorization for Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Test on Cancer

    I saw this in an e-mail this morning. Here's a link to the blog:

    While it seems limited at the moment, I'm sure this will open the door to testing of other variants in the future. Nevertheless, this is great news, and will hopefully help many people.

    It was available in the past, before the government got on their back.
