The punditocracy is sure mixed about the health info from 23AndMe.

As I understand it, the problem medical geneticists have with it is that the engine for deriving probabilities is proprietary. Multiple sites give different results for the same person.

the problem seems to be that there is no scientific consensus on how to determine probabilities of medical issues due to genetic predisposition.
