Mental health disorders are not tangible realities

Psychiatric and psychological diagnoses are not tangible realities; rather, they are constructs. Cancer is a verifiable reality. A physician who diagnoses lung cancer can provide concrete proof — e.g. a biopsy — to support his verdict. But a mental health professional who diagnoses a child with, say, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder can provide no such verification.

Family

Friends could be family. What people are finding out from DNA sites.

People across the globe are using DNA companies, including 23andMe, MyHeritage, Ancestry and Family Tree DNA, to find relatives — in addition to creating digital family trees that go back hundreds of years. DNA tests at the doctor’s office might cost upwards of $400, but these are typically less than $100 and are just as accurate, author Jennifer Stagg said.
