It seems there are some California residents who aren’t happy about 23andme and Navigenics. They’ve gotten the California DOH to investigate claims of the tests being too expensive AND being done without a doctor’s order.
Wired’s deputy editor, Thomas Goetz, wrote a stern rebuttal to the California doofuses:
“This is my data, not a doctor’s. Please, send in your regulators when a doctor needs to cut me open, or even draw my blood. Regulation should protect me from bodily harm and injury, not from information that’s mine to begin with.”
Now you’re talkin’. Luckily we have Wired to help protect us from a government that should stay out of 90% of what they’re involved in.
