A DNA Database For All U.S. Workers?

cottage In Soviet Russia... (625 comments)

I see the benefits of this. I really do. But then we're opening ourselves up to a whole bunch of problems, not the least of which are the aforementioned and summarily dismissed civil liberties violations. And what about the health insurance issue? If they've got your DNA, and decide they are so inclined, they can determine which genetic diseases to which you are predisposed, and HIPAA goes right out the window as the concept of 'preexisting conditions' becomes something entirely different.
