Investigation Puts Ancestry DNA Kits To The Test Among Sets Of Triplets



Millions of people are purchasing and using home DNA kits to determine their ancestry. Inside Edition enlisted the help of two sets triplets and a set of quadruplets to investigate the accuracy of the at-home tests. Their ancestry should be absolutely identical since they all came from the same egg. Unfortunately, the reveal confused and disappointed the sisters because of the varied results. The set of quadruplets were almost identical and did not have the variations seen in the triplets.

  1. it's thought environmental factors can trigger gene 'switches'. this test may prove the theory. perhaps the twins were born 100% identical, but with time the genes developed variations through environmental or chemical influences within their own autonomy.

  2. Mutations and the environment that people grow up in can change results, but the results shouldn't be very different for identical twins, the one where the range is from around 50 to 70 is odd.

  3. Most likely these tests could be wrong due to the fact that no tests exist could be exacr. There is possibility that parts of the genetic code be altered even if they came from the same egg, but more likely parts of the Genetic code for each person is expressed differently. This is my sorta hypothesis, my guess. I know that both parts of my family came from around Germany so many grandma is German and my Grandpa is American, then my Grammy and Grandfather is American, but have German ancestory. I am basically a mix of German, German-Swiss, and American.

  4. 4:22 “23 and Me said … a 50% confidence level, but if a customer chooses a higher level of confidence, the results would be more generic.” So is it 23 and Me or the journalist who doesn’t know what “generic” means?

  5. Well if kids get 50/50 from mom and dad. Then going down the line will get smaller and smaller.
    Kids including twins can inherit different things from parents gene wise.
    You can't 100% say that EVERY single feature, blood group, dna from distant distant relatives from hundreds of years ago will all go down the line equally.
