What security concerns do you have with DNA and genealogy testing?
I'm super dubious and don't trust a company out to make money with something as personal as my DNA.
I think there are other ways to get the medical information and family stories I need without going to something like 23andMe first. (I know that's not true for everyone)
But I know a lot of people who do it despite that. Curious what you took into consideration if you choose to participate.
- Google UJBa23In the future they could use DNA to “customize” your health insurance needs as well as to hire you (who wants to hire people that have a higher tendency to get addicted to drugs or who are more prone to depression?)
Well that’s the main reason why I wouldn’t do any DNA test
- New / ITrcafelanrdI thought about it. But, when you really think about what may happen with your DNA, it becomes a real concern. The police and crime databases “misplace” DNA every day.
What is the company folds?
What if the company does a Ray Kroc like McDonald’s? And takes the DNA and uses it against you making millions?
What if the company gets bought by Google?
It’s a mess. I have a rare blood type, and if I could patent it, I would. And make them sign an arbitration agreement and indemnity clause.
