Geno Mag Summary
(C;C) 2 Wet earwax. Normal body odour. Normal colostrum.
(C;T) 2 Wet earwax. Slightly better body odour.
(T;T) 2.5 Dry earwax. No body odour. Likely Asian ancestry. Reduced colostrum.

Heterozygous for wet earwax. This makes earwax wet, sticky, and honey-coloured, which is normal for non-Asians. Being heterozygous slightly improves body odour and may slightly reduce colostrum production for breast feeding. People with this usually still need to use deodorant.
