1 legimate reason is if the patient has too much iron in their blood. Too much iron can lead to kidney damage, liver damage etc. one of the common tests is a DNA test to see if this is a genetic condition.

Why do some agencies believe that people suddenly become stupid when they turn 65? If a person couldn't be "targeted" at 21, or 37, or 50, why could they suddenly be "targeted" just because they're "elderly"?

It's a waste but only costs $100 or so. The 'ancestry" part is kind of fun.
