MD doesn't seem to like that sort of thing.  Otherwise I would have the info already.  I may fake my address.

Use someone else's spit ... for your DNA sample.  But don't use a woman's spit.

I would only have use for my own DNA info.

Well, seems I'm 99.9% Oirish/Eng----. Knew that. Also have 1165 other 23andMe clients in my "DNA family". That would be the minority that would actually do something like this.

I've just ordered a ancestry dna kit...  Will report when results received.  Bet there is a native american in my french canadian ancestry.  And bet I am mostly British and northern French...

Beware!

Quote
You probably wouldn’t hand out your social security number without having a pretty good idea of how that information was going to be used, right? That would be dumb. It’s extremely sensitive information. And yet, the consumer genetic testing market is booming thanks to people readily giving up another piece of their identity: their genetic code.
Quote
Despite all that, we’re guessing that when you signed up for Ancestry or 23andMe, you probably didn’t read the fine print to find out what, exactly, those companies plan to do with your data. We can’t blame you—they’re long, boring polices written in legalese that’s difficult to understand. If you actually read those policies, though, you might not have gone ahead with the test. It turns out that the breadth of rights you are giving away to your DNA is kind of terrifying.

They're going to scan people at the check-out lines until they find one with a match for their sample.

Beware!

I appreciate the concern, really I do.  And I red the article start to finish.  I was aware of it possibilities. 

But I am single, oldish, and unlikely to have any useful DNA.  Well, I've never caught the Flu since puberty and if that ends up helping others, fine with me. I'd rather die famous than rich, LOL!

I'll trade that for information about my genetic heritage.

You should probably rest more often, take your pills, and try a waterbed.  I like mine a lot.  The waterbed, I don't take any pills.  .

Was the *sigh* about the king-sized waterbed I share with my 3 cats at night for about 10 hours while I sleep late, or was it that I don't need to take any pills and haven't been "sick" with anything in decades?  LOL!

Jewish people originally from Hungary, would have a wide variety of ancestries.  Except for kohanim, Jews did intermarry a lot.
