DNA Paternity Testing Myths

DNA Paternity Testing Myths

father & infantChoosing the right DNA test and company to perform it is a confusing decision especially for people who normally don’t give a second thought to their DNA. The DNA Diagnostics Center* website has a DNA Resource Library where I found this list of top 10 DNA paternity testing myths revealed.

10. “A $99 test is the right choice for me.”
9. “I can’t stand the sight of blood or needles, so I could never participate in a paternity test!”
8. “I have to wait until the baby is born to have a paternity test done.”
7. “If I get a test, people will find out about it.”
6. “Paternity testing divides families.”
5. “Paternity testing takes too long. I need results now.”
4. “My ex-boyfriend is gone. Without him, we will never know who the father of my child is!”
3. “I cannot do a paternity test because the potential father of my child lives hundreds of miles away from me.”
2. “It doesn’t matter where a paternity test is performed because all labs are created equal.”
1. “Paternity testing is expensive.”
