What if your DNA can cure cancer? Who do you think would get the credit? Not you... You no longer own it.
So it's better to never know that your blood could cure people?

I've already had it done by 23 and me. Lot's of information. You don't have to give your rights away. Just have to check the right boxes.
Useful information. Like if you have a bad gene you don't want to have a kid with someone that has the other half of the bad disease causing gene.
The information is very accurate. Some of my relatives have taken the test and they show up on my relative list.

Just think if you gave someone your DNA and they patented it.
Then later, if you made a lot of money, they could sue you patent infringement.
Think about that one for a minute!

What I can't figure out is why would they even need to do this at all? Almost everyone goes for routine blood tests at their doctor and they don't give it a second thought. How hard would it be for TPTB to simply steal your DNA that way?
