Well I've found it interesting. I was attracted to this thread because of the title. I ignore most DNA topics on here because they baffle me with science.
I'm not considering DNA testing, I'm just interested in learning about it. If I was considering it I would do lots of research and seek advice before purchasing, like with any other expensive item.
