For the first time, the federal government is allowing people to find out if they carry certain cancer risks through the home genetic testing company, 23 and Me, without a doctor. More companies could follow suit. Monday on The Sound of Ideas at 9, we’ll ask a geneticist what people should know before they send in their DNA. Then, many millennials are delaying buying homes, having kids and saving for retirement, and a new report says millennials may never be as rich as their parents. We’ll talk to a panel of young folks about the financial hurdles their generation has had to overcome, and what strengths come from being the most educated generation in history.
