The Google of Spit

This article is fascinating. There is a big, crazy world out there, especially when you let the free market get to work. Of course the FDA wants to stop that...

GATTACA... where it wasn't the Government that destroyed lives, but your "insurability" (or lack thereof) determined by your genetics...
Anarchy ungodly? See 1 Sam. 8

The desire to control the life of others is more evil than the desire to simply kill them.
The desire to control the life of others by proxy, through “voting”, is just as evil… but more cowardly.

Sort of. The government made it illegal to use DNA testing to discriminate but it was so cheap & easy to secretly test someone most companies did it and used the information to fire those who were likely to get sick or be a drain on the company long term. People also tested possible partners so if you had a negative pre-disposition you couldn't get a spouse!!!
Give them your teeth, not your belly.
