My main thing about it is that if you use any of those services and later happen to be criminally charged for anything, the prosecution can easily subpoena a DNA sample. If you go through your doctor, you're protected by HIPAA.

and this is bad how? DNA projects have helped solve many crimes, especially cold cases

I'm more concerned that these DNA tracking services all have a clause in their TOS about owning the rights to use your genetic information in perpetuity...

and whats your real concern with this? Honestly, I'm curious how you see this impacting you

this biggest issue with this was when that team patented the genes that show a super high chance of breast cancer, so they could charge huge sums. which was incredibly f***ed up

You give consent for a company to run a DNA analysis, not for the government to have free access to a DNA sample whenever they want it, and because of that I'm saying people who give that consent are dumb.
