Jerry Springer, Maury Povich…yep, it’s Daytime Drama! Fortunately, it’s not the only paternity test option! IDENTIGENE wants to raise awareness of at-home paternity testing so that families know they have options when paternity is in question. Did you know that 1 out of 5 people have questioned paternity or know someone that has?
The fact of the paternity matter is that children who know and have an active relationship with their biological father experience emotional, financial and health benefits. Why? Research reveals many reasons. For example, children often benefit emotionally from a sense of belonging and knowing that they are a valued member of a family unit. Financially, two working parents can lead to a more stable income and home environment. And knowing both parents’ genetic background can help doctors prevent health issues or diagnose and treat certain conditions. Kristen Enterline, a molecular biologist at IDENTIGENE, talks about the reality of at-home paternity testing in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSPHkmBq7KQ
