I think it is absolutely crazy in this day and age that I have to go through a trial and error method to see if my child is allergic to an antibiotic or peanuts. I should just know.

Some suggestions for you :

I'm not going to change; I'm very stubborn in this way. I am what I am.

We all want our genetic information. Why would you not want genetic information?

When you try new things, you will make mistakes. That's OK.

I have an unreasonably optimistic view of the world.

I really like raw connections, and so I've always had a harder time in politics because I feel there's a lot of veneer around everything.

It is important to democratize personal genetics and make it more accessible.

People want to be in charge of health information. They want it available the same way online banking is available.

I'm at a slightly higher risk for type 2 diabetes, and my grandmother had diabetes. My hemoglobin a1c, which is one of the measures, started being a little high when I was drinking a ton of that coconut water.

I hope that Los Altos is one of the first cities to have self-driving cars, and if that's true, well, awesome, because there's a lot of parking lots that we could get rid of and use for parks. That would be amazing!

You are not just about death and disease.

I did a lot of fun things before I had kids - I traveled a lot. Now, I just really love being with my kids.

I believe that we all have freedom to shape our own life and the world around us.

There should be choice in healthcare.

I tried to minimize exposure to technology before two. After that, I've taught the kids to use devices in moderation. It's important for them to learn how to control their behaviour themselves. Simply restricting access makes them want it more.
