My genetic profile predicts that I will consume less or no coffee.
But it’s wrong. This confused me but then I looked at the data.
I have only 1 genetic variant that says I’m likely to consume more caffeine which they determine is as if I had none at all.
So, it’s all probabilities.
A common error is seeing probabilities and considering them certainties.
But they’re not. Let’s say there was an 80% chance that I would be a low coffee drinker.
Does that mean I’m a low coffee drinker?
No, it means there’s a 1 in 5 chance that I’m a normal or heavy coffee drinker.
See how different it sounds?
Ultimately though, I think I use coffee medicinally, to counteract heavy ADHD.
