The seasonal flu can be uncomfortable, inconvenient and — in many cases — dangerous.

Flu season has arrived again. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, flu activity in the United States has been relatively low as of the Fall of 2018 with eight states and the territory of Guam reporting activity.

Imagine, for example, learning when you are 30 years old that you are genetically predisposed to Type 2 diabetes; do you think you'd make some diet and lifestyle changes immediately to prevent it? We can even use genotyping to give us a better understanding of what foods you should eat to optimize your personal health. Here's a closer look at this cutting-edge medical science.
