    Regarding 23andMe, there is no need for Genentech to pay one red penny on behalf of Parkinson’s Disease and its cause because we already know: Glyphosate. Glyphosate sprayed on RoundUp Ready corn and soybeans. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science PhD Seneff, senior scientist (in natural language processing) at MIT (where fools are allegedly not suffered gladly), has proven this (to the satisfaction of an army of gullible simpletons) by simple data dredging. She found a correlation (R > 0.99) between the incidence of the disease and the rate of application of RoundUp in the fields (far, far from where the people live). The same methodology proves that Glyphosate also causes Azlheimer’s Disease, autism, and cardiovascular disease (and G-d knows how many more): who would have thought that a simple herbicide would be the cause of so many of the world’s discontents (who besides a gang of fanatical anti GMO morons) decades and even centuries before it was invented?

    Such are the vagaries of entrepreneurial science.
