Please see https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... physiology Has anyone here had their genes analysed? Have you found it helpful? Is it worth the money spent?

Not done it and unlikely to. There are far too many unknowns at the moment to make any reliable predictions and false positive rate too high.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
