    It has been a while coming.
    I was invited to a conference on genomics and food around 2004.
    Actual DNA testing of individuals was not a practical reality then, although it was thought to be imminent, so this is certainly a new era.

    Following the link in the above post, I could see a brochure "Genetic Testing for Personalized Nutrition" from Nutrigenomix Inc. I don't know the price for this test. The following is copied from the brochure.
    • Comprehensive genetic test consisting of 45 genetic markers.
    • Developed by world-renowned researchers.
    • Genetic tests are based on the most robust scientific evidence.
    • DNA is analyzed using a simple saliva sample.
    • Personalized recommendations developed based on your unique genetic profile.
    • Contact your healthcare provider to get started and eat according to your genes!
