Hmmmm...Genetic (DNA) Monitoring?

Postby FZ1 » Mon Apr 11, 2011 11:53 am

Would anyone allow this? I'm not sure I want my genetic code available to whomever they share it with or to hackers who may get a hold of it. I find it interesting though.

Wasn't Lifehacker hacked a few years back? Don't know what's worse floating around out there on the WWW, my CC # or my DNA sequence.
