These achievements are due in part to our improved understanding of how the body works and our use of medicine and technology to capitalize on this knowledge. The next chapter in this understanding lies in the information found in DNA. This includes traits linked to progressive eyesight loss, hearing loss, why the sun's rays damage skin, and how diet can protect against harmful chemicals in the environment and foods.

Athletigen's Wellness Report contains a section on aging health where you will find information from your DNA that will help to improve your understanding of how you can live healthier now. It also contains actionables to reduce your risk of experiencing some of the negative effects of getting older.

The Wellness Report delivers insights into five traits related to aging health:

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
  • Sun Damage and Wrinkles
