Based on the information from 23andMe, I am in a group of individuals (those with similar genetics relative to markers for CHD) in which 32.8 out of 100 would develop coronary heart disease, where as an overall group of similar age and ethnicity would have 46.8 out of 100 develop CHD. So in this case, my odds of developing CHD are lower. Here the odds ratio relative to CHD is 0.7 (<1 is better than >1 and a value of ~1 would mean average risk). Check out the image below, taken from my results provided by 23andMe.
If this were YOUR results, what would be your thoughts? Think broadly here. We will look at your comments and I will add some thoughts.
