Whether it sparks a curiosity of heritage or a trait as obvious as our eye colour, our DNA makes up who we are and unravels how our body responds to dietary, exercise and lifestyle choices. The at-home genetic test has grown in popularity over the past few years to even make space in the marketplace for the genetic insights on your canine.
As the friendly neighborhood Spider Man famously said, “with great power comes great responsibility.” We’ve learned firsthand from influential corporations, such as Facebook, where this becomes an issue and users’ data become compromised. The same cautionary tale applies to your personal genome information, where the last thing you want is a massive search engine selling your health data to another corporation without your approval.
The Bowhead Health team is proud to introduce Genome Buddy -a wellness test where your health data is secured and controlled by only you. Genome Buddy is designed with military grade encryption, and does not share your health information with a third party company to ensure your privacy.
