The Pentagon on Direct-to-Consumer DNA testing

As a military family member I have been surprised that the Pentagon has been so slow to issue an opinion on DNA testing. Behind the scenes memos indicate that might be coming to an end.

Read the latest information on the Pentagon and DTC DNA testing in this Yahoo exclusive.

Exclusive: Pentagon warns military members DNA kits pose ‘personal and operational risks

Do you think the Pentagon should prohibit service members from DTC DNA testing?

  1. As with anything, it’s important to understand potential risks, but the Pentagon is blowing smoke here. Service members are more at risk from actions of our own government than from any potential misuse of DNA tests from the consumer market. I think it’s pretty clear that privacy has become illusory. Anonymity is a thing of the past.
