Geno Mag Summary
(A;A) 1.7 0.5x reduced risk of multiple myeloma, general reduced risk of cancer
(A;G) 1.5 0.8x reduced risk of multiple myeloma, general reduced risk of cancer
(G;G) 1 Increased risk of multiple myeloma, B-cell neoplasms, and cancer in general

A number of small studies with lowish p-values but low heterogeneity across studies suggest the A allele is protective against cancer. B-cell neoplasms may be particularly affected. Most studies showed a protective role for the A allele, which, by inference, means a higher (but not quantified) risk for the G allele.
