Genetic discrimination in the future
Something really scary could be looming in the not too distance future

Anne Wojcicki none other than Sergey Brin's(Google founder) wife, is current founder of 23andMe that has began offering controversial saliva-based DNA-testing service that Time magazine in 2008 has called invention of the year

But there is something more sinister

In 2008, Time magazine named the company's saliva-based DNA-testing service "Invention of the Year". The service and ability to map significant portions of the genome has raised controversial questions including whether the results can be meaningfully interpreted, and if they will lead to genetic discrimination. The states of New York and California unsuccessfully attempted to block the tests (provided by 23andMe as well as other companies) under the grounds that they were not properly licensed[2] and attempted to require tests to be conducted only when ordered by a physician.[10][11] By August 2008, 23andMe had received licenses that allow them to continue to do business in California.[12]


Genetic discrimination occurs when people are treated differently by their employer or insurance company because they have or are perceived to have a gene mutation that causes or increases the risk of an inherited disorder. People who undergo genetic testing may be at risk for genetic discrimination.

The results of a genetic test are normally included in a person's medical records.[where?] When a person applies for life, disability, or health insurance, in some countries the insurance company may ask to look at these records before making a decision about coverage. An employer may also have the right to look at an employee's medical records. As a result, genetic test results could affect a person's insurance coverage or employment. People making decisions about genetic testing should be aware that when test results are placed in their medical records, the results might not be kept private.

Re: Genetic discrimination in the future
japand2 They will also be used to find out who has Jewish DNA, which I dare say most of you don't care about. Although you probably will when you get rounded up for the FEMA camps. You didn't really think that they where going to stop there did you.
