Even the Iquana is blacker than Hasley.

I've never done one of those tests nor will I ever. I just don't feel comfortable not knowing exactly where my DNA is being stored and what specific purposes it will be used for beyond genetic testing.

They ask you of you want your data to be used to further scientific research or not

I believe that is just a formality. It's not like medical entities have not unethically experimented with and used our DNA and cells for research purposes in the past without our permission. Think Medical Apartheid and Henrietta Lacks.

This is such BS he is a liar. The 23 and me test takes a ridiculous amount of saliva it is not a swab test. He would have to squeeze his iguana till its head popped off to get enough saliva to fill their tube. If you give them less than a table spoon its invalid.

i thought they keep it in their database

no they don't there is an option to keep it in the database i think for a certain amount of years or you can not choose that..

i really dont get why people are scared of 23andme though like the gov't easily can get your dna if they want it not to mention they listen to your conversations 24/7

I agree. And they always make me think of the book Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Like, am I going to run into my clone one day because I got my DNA tested?

Sounds silly, but I really wouldn’t put it past anyone.

I believe this is fake and was done to go viral lol, since when did 23&me send results in the mail?

I've taken the tests and they were accurate, I asked for them to discard my dna but if they didn't I really don't care lol. I'm not gonna live life worrying about what they will do with my dna.

I've never read that book, but it is right up my alley. Let me go order it right quick. I agree with everything that you said here. I've always wondered if it is actually constitutional for them to be using these same DNA samples to solve yearslong cold cases. It just seems unethical, and I wonder if people are actually paying attention to what they are consenting to.

Also, governments can force these DNA companies to give them access to the database to screen for criminals as well

My belief is that the government is creating a data base of genetics. I think these companies are fronts and Americans are unknowingly PAYING to have their DNA catalogued by the U.S. Gvernment. I also believe the Government is looking for unique genetics to create therapies without having to pay the person they belong to. If the U.S. Government commanded Americans to turn over their DNA there would be an uproar. This way, Americans happily PAY THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE THEIR DNA and exploit it for the Government's personal gain.

This is fake af. Humans and Iguanas don't even share the same pair of chromosomes to begin with.

Neither do papayas but the President of Tanzania swabbed one with a fake profile and papayas test came back positive for the c*v*d.

idk why you skeptical @Buckeye Rose .
He had a goat tested too and billy came back positive.

Can you imagine going to the mall...chillin, and then BOOM, you see your clone, also chillin, headed down the escalator drinking a big slurpee.

lmao

LMAO!!! Chile! You are so right! They've been creating clones for decades now! The thought of giving them ammo to try me like that makes me cringe. Ain't it scary?! The fact that people think that this is some conspiracy theory is even scarier. We, Black people specifically, are still being experimented on and we refuse to acknowledge it. This is actually a thing!

I agree.

And i saw a study on FB that said 23&Me discovered that Black American women do in fact have a gene that makes them age slower.

I was like...cute, but I doubt these Black women wanted them to use their dna like this...

This is fake. 23andMe doesn't even use cotton swabs nor provide any to collect your DNA. Notice he didn't show himself actually mailing that in. Y'all will believe anything these TikTok people say when 99% of the videos on TikTok are people looking for attention and to become the next viral sensation, even stealing other people's ideas, stories, clips, and audio (like other people's storytimes) for their own content. It's almost rewarded to do that on TikTok.

I agree with you, too. If the consent forms are anything like the terms and conditions with most things, I highly doubt people are fully reading them. And since forensic genealogy is so new, what are the laws governing it? I’ve wondered the same things as you. I’m glad they caught the Golden State Killer, but what does that mean for the average Joe’s rights?

The book is set in a futuristic dystopia, but it’s an easy read and very though-provoking. It was made it into a move a while back, but of course the movie is not nearly as good as the book. I hope you like it!
