The effect of the G allele is the opposite here as it is in the article. The Val variant (g) is associated with high we stroke risk.

Agreed. fixed. thanks. --- cariaso 13:07, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps I am misinterpreting it, but it looks like the main study behind this SNP's stated effects used both Met(A) heterozygotes & homozygotes as a single reference population to compare against the Val(G) population. Would it not be more sensible then to give the heterozygotes the "normal" green results as well? --- Neverknowsbest (talk) 08:37, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

You are correct, and in double-checking this, with the benefit of hindsight it seems better to show the two Met-containing genotypes as being "good", i.e. somewhat protective, given the ~90% of people are Val/Val, so, the genotypes have been edited to reflect that. Thanks for pointing this out. Greg (talk) 01:48, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
