Infographic: What 1 drop of blood says about your health

Medical science has come a long way since the days of blood letting and leeches.

This summer the Atlantic ran a feature called "The Measured Man" about an astrophysicist and computer scientist who believes that one day, perhaps in the not-too-distant future, computers will be able to read our genetic code and find illness before it even has a chance to take root. 

But in the meantime, we still need doctors and wellness experts to help us chart a path to health. The doctors, nutritionists and health specialists at WellnessFX believe that "You can only improve what you can measure... and you can measure a lot with a single drop of blood."
