DNA Tests Can Create A Placebo Effect
Researchers at Stanford University, California, found that merely receiving information about your genetic risk profile can alter your outcome on exercise endurance and food consumption tests, regardless of whether or not you are at genetic risk.
'Receiving genetic information doesn't just make you more informed,' lead author Dr Alia Crum said. 'What this study shows is that it can also have a physiological impact on your body in a way that actually changes your overall risk profile.'
'The take-home message here is that the mindset that you put people in when you deliver genetic risk information is not irrelevant,' Dr Crum said. 'The mindset of being genetically at risk or protected can alter how we feel, what we do and – as this study shows – how our bodies respond.'
