Comment: Research to scare people about DNA privacy. (Score 1, Insightful) 58

As a fairly well-known geneticist, a study like this either, through direct dissemination or twisted discussion, is exactly what continues to worry people about giving DNA samples. I am also a lawyer and concerned about this in terms of any privacy rules which may have been violated. I am not against experiments of this type, so long as every subject knows exactly what they are getting self into. General consent forms for studies are expected to be written, in most cases, at a 5-year-old reading level - I can't imaging discussing this at that level.

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
