Getting a DNA test is like reading the book your genetics have written about you.
Taking it can help you understand yourself on a deeper level to make more informed decisions in your life.
For instance, your DNA test results might help you to understand which foods you should avoid, or which kind of tests you should be asking your doctor for.
Aside from being able to make more informed decisions on your health goals – be it to lose weight, prevent certain types of cancer from occuring or delivering healthy babies – there are other reasons where DNA testing will play a huge part in your life. This is where Asia’s Queen of Pop G.E.M. steps in and shares her health ambitions.
How Can G.E.M. Achieve Her Health Goals With a DNA Test?
You already know G.E.M. The Queen of Pop is not only a CircleDNA Changemaker – she believes in the power of preventive health so much that she has invested in our CircleDNA research and development!
Gloria Tang Tsz-kei, or better known by her stage name G.E.M., is a worldwide pop sensation. Having taken on stages and showbiz scenes in Asia and beyond, G.E.M. has made her wide-range vocals, signature falsettos and young stardom an unforgettable mark.
On stage, the successful singer-songwriter is always seemingly fierce and fearless; off stage, she is also a contagious force of positivity and health-preneur-slash-investor of CircleDNA.
But when it comes to uncovering her genetic traits, cancer risks and family history, the Queen of Pop opens up her more vulnerable self.
Not only did she take a DNA test, but she also invested in it—both financially and spiritually. ?
The Queen of Pop expressed her reasons for taking a DNA test, and are definitely powerful reasons for anyone seeking betterment to their health.
1. Ruling Out Cancer and Disease Risks
When it comes to uncovering DNA test results, especially the cancer risk section, some may feel anxious; for G.E.M., she gets emotional.
“My grandmother passed away from pancreatic cancer,” the singer reveals. As “the dearest and the most important person in [her] life “, G.E.M. wished the technology of DNA testing had been available much earlier. “If my grandma could’ve known her genes in advance and made preventive measures, she may still be here with me now.”
This epiphany led the superstar to rise to her challenge: to defy the notion of “genetic destiny”; to influence others to take charge of their own health by learning about their DNA in advance.
Through her CircleDNA test, she discovered that she carries no genetic mutations that could increase her risks for up to 36 cancers.
Since her grandmother’s passing, G.E.M. has taken it upon herself to regain control of her health and well-being – pushing forth her profound notion of preventative care.
2. For Everyday Betterment, Inside Out!
Interestingly enough, G.E.M.’s stage name literally stands for “Get Everybody Moving”!
From music gigs to health, G.E.M. wants you to get up and take action. It’s no wonder Asia’s Queen of Pop takes her health investments seriously.
With the opportunity to optimise her health, G.E.M. has made informed decisions with an optimal dietary type, fitness type, and many more!
Upon making changes to her diet, she has since felt the increase in her energy levels, a sharper mind and a healthier lifestyle. Thus, leading her to become the happy and enthusiastic Queen of Pop that we love today.
