This gives me concern: That is, no participant names will be given, only an alphanumeric participant ID. Your genetic data and survey responses will only be used to further research in the field of public health,
My concern was not that they would use genetic data to underwrite me,or the participant, but that the genetic data combined with health questionairre (e. 23andme) is intended for use in future underwriting, especially once AHIP has been successfulin getting the ACA repealed.
It is, perhaps, a moot point, but we live in a corporate controlled, profit motivated world and the bottom line and it is inevitable that corporations will control and/or profit from virtually every aspect of our lives, including DNA.
It would be a wonderful thing, if genetics was used to find cures for genetic diseases, like my insulin resistance, but there is no profit for PhARMA in such humanitarian efforts, only loss.
Clever marketing tool, using genetic genealogy, to obtain mega data, not just for insurance purposes, but for research purposes,without having to pay for it, as was the case with the Capellie Census for Y DNA in the British Isles.
