It blows my mind that for so many years 23&me disingenuously and knowingly break the regulatory laws and market their tests to the uninformed public, often misleading patients who get wrong results. I have discussed this issue with a HR manager at this company a few years ago and mentioned to her the extreme importance to have their test FDA approved before they attempt to commercialize them. The FDA should not only stop 23&me, but also heavily fine this company for selling an unapproved health product that can be seriously misleading, require to reimburse the patients that have submitted samples for analysis, and shut down the company.

I agree with mari posa. My genome feels safer already with these crooks shut down! How dare they try to innovate in a new realm of medicine without explicit approval from government. What would we be like if other companies in the Bay Area did the same? We may as well be living in Somalia if this goes on!

I too strongly agree with Mari Posa. And I'm amazed at the lame response 23andMe posted on their web site.
I'm ashamed they are in the Mountain View community.
