My opinion is based on the fact I have done the full FGS testing with the control region for a female showing medical results. I believe I should have control over my results. I don't think any company should be sharing the results..... if I am understanding this correctly. ??

I agree as well with two minor provisos

1) I think that pony done kicked open the barn door jumped the fence, took off down the road and is already plumb out of state. In other words with in a few years virtually every American's medical records will have a full genome and it will be available for research.

2) My wife ha a genetic abnormality that makes Anacin, Advil, aspirin etc deadly poisons. My wife really hates to take pain medicines or any other medicine unless she absolutely has to and had never taken more than one or two Advil tablets in a day. On a flight back to America she started taking the stated max dosage on the Advil bottle. This resulted in her very nearly dying, a $300,000.00 + hospital bill which Tricare(retired military health insurance) paid most of. Still, Our out of pocket was roughly $10,000.00.

When the personal genome is part of the normal persons medical records, people like my wife will know that one of the safest drugs, like Advil, in the world, just happens to be a deadly poison for them.

The last figures that I saw stated that roughly 100,000 Americans are KNOWN to die every year because of unnecessary bad reactions to legitimate medical drugs.

Note, I still agree with the two of you. But, that pony is gone, gone, gone.
