    I think a lot of the initial stuff from OP isn't as true as it seems lol! I've seen people who have smoked cigarettes, drank alcohol and not exercise but live to be 90. It's all about contentment. Don't be depressed. Be happy and you should (hopefully) live a long life.

    Also, I've had an insane stressful 4 years. I don't think it means I'm going to die when I'm 50.

    Good point! However, you can enter a fake name on your sample (just don't forget what it is!) and then if the government does claim your data at some point, at least you'll be somewhat covered. Damn....wish I had thought of that for myself.

    Oh, and it's not your whole genetic makeup. Just some genes. It still costs at least a few thousand dollars to do your whole genome, but that is expected to be much cheaper soon.

    Also, your expressed genome will be available for testing soon. That will be a whole different ball of wax

    I actually do think I'll die early. Here's why:

    -Both parents had cancer in their 40's. My father died of thyroid cancer. My mom got breast cancer, which she beat using conventional therapy (chemo + radical mastectomy).
    -My maternal grandmother also had breast cancer in her 40's (double mastectomy) and then died of liver cancer in her late 50's.
    -I just turned 40. The odds are good I have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer. My maternal history indicates I may get it in the next decade.
    -I was a sickly child. I had tonsillitis and strep throat so frequently that one year I spent almost an entire year on antibiotics. Consequently I am allergic or non-responsive to many antibiotics. A minor infection may one day kill me. I strive to use natural products that strengthen my immune system, but I still get sick every year, usually in winter. I attribute my winter illnesses to the lack of sunlight in my northern climate (Alaska) and although I supplement with D3 it doesn't appear to be enough. I'm seriously considering taking up tanning again, and damn my skin.
    -Which leads me to the possibility that due to repeated sunburns in my 20's plus some tanning booth action I may end up with skin cancer. My grandparents have had both types of skin cancer.
