WAIT, WHAT?! THIS IS MY GENETIC AGE?

IT IS. HERE’S HOW TAPGENES CALCULATES THAT NUMBER.

Your Genetic Age is based on the number of close relatives you have with these diseases:

Your Genetic Age is based on the number of close relatives you have with these diseases:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Bladder cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Breast cancer (females)
  • Kidney cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Ovarian cancer (females)
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer (males)
  • Skin melanoma

We also weigh:

  • How prevalent each disease is in your family.
  • How often the disease occurs outside of your family.
  • How much the risk of getting the disease is boosted if one of your family members has had it.

EVERY PERSON IN YOUR FAMILY COUNTS.

So does every step you take to live each day as a healthier, happier, informed member of your community.

It is not perfect science.

Because we are all individuals. Because our lifestyle makes a difference.  Because researchers are learning more every day about how to treat, prevent and eradicate diseases.

Genetic Age has many limitations. Here are a few:

  • If you have lived longer or come from a larger family, you are more likely to have relatives who’ve had the diseases we track closely.
  • We’ve narrowed our focus to diseases you’ve told us are most important to track. Every disease is not included in our formula.
  • Distant relatives are not included.
  • Age is one way to calculate and communicate our health risks but it is not the only way.
  • TapGenes hard at work every day to add more information, to test our formula and to be sure that we are bringing you the very best science we can get our hands on.

One more important note.

And not just for our legal team, for you

TapGenes Genetic Age is an educational tool, not a medical tool. We always recommend that you discuss the results with your healthcare provider and it is our hope you will use the opportunity to make positive changes to live a longer, healthier life.
