Mosquitoes love my DNA.
And so do ticks and fleas!
Because I live in a contaminated trailer park, I thought it wise to get my DNA checked. And so last year I sent off one of those DNA kits, and they've been sending me reports ever since. Surprisingly good news, so far. And here's something they sent to me last week, which I already knew:
Mosquito Bite Frequency
"Lena, based on your genetics and other factors, you are likely to get more mosquito bites than others."
Yep, any mosquito, tick, flea, chigger, and no-see-um within a stone's throw make a beeline for my abrosial blood... I've been lucky so far this summer, but fall is when the creepy-crawlies really get hungry... Time to stock up on extra iron pills.
