There is an old saying, how do you know where you are going if you don’t know where you have been? In the past thirty to forty years the advancements in genotyping services has reached amazing heights. In the past when we needed to discover someone or find out details having a fingerprint was really our only options. Now, with the advancements in technology we have discovered who Jack the Ripper was and we have discovered many of the initial origins of life on Earth.
When we look into our past we are discovering a lot of things about how we came to be. We are learning who our parents were, grandparents and even ancestors who existed hundreds of years prior. Taking advantage of this technology will allow us to find different areas of the world where we came from. We can learn stories about lost love, genetic defects that may crop up in our lives and even where the love for our favorite foods come from.
Taking a trip back in time has only been possible in science fiction. Now, with modern technology we can easily travel back in time using our own DNA.
Making positive decisions for the future
Learning from the past will help us develop a positive future. If for example, we discover that many of our ancestors were doctors and lawyers then perhaps that is a career path you could consider. If you discover that someone in your past was famous such as a president or even an inventor learning these facts can really add a level of excitement to our lives.
It can also go the opposite way as well. If we discover that members of our family died from drugs, drinking, smoking or other hazards we can take positive steps to remove them from our lives and avoid the problems that they had to deal with.
Knowledge is power, what will you do with it?
