Research & Science

The science behind Genome Health Analysis has been subjected to rigorous scrutiny from scientists internationally, as demonstrated by the number of published articles about the subject. The researchers who developed Genome Health Analysis have had articles published in 17 leading international scientific journals. To be published in such journals, the papers must pass a process called “peer review”, meaning leading scientists review the submitted work to check for authenticity and credibility. The articles have also been cited widely by scientists, attesting to the cutting-edge nature of Genome Health Analysis.
