The Double Helix Double Cross

`

To be sure, next to no one is dying to…

  • be denied a job promotion and its increase in pay, perks and prestige
  • cough up exorbitant premiums to health and life insurance providers
  • fall prey to matchmaker “services” which tend to attract gold diggers

Yet, that’s what’s actually at stake in life, whenever anyone presents a sample of their DNA to the corporations that make up the metastasizing industry, renown for trafficking in direct-to-consumer genetics test kits; all specifically designed to dig up ancestral roots and/or reveal life compromising genetic anomalies.

Here’s the rub…

Factoring in how we live within a society where respect for privacy is at a premium, hell, is next to non-existent, what’s to stop unscrupulous DNA harvester CEOs from double crossing their clientele; i.e., by profiting, handsomely, off of every damning double helix profile sold to corporate bean counters, insurance actuaries and even scamming sham lovers.

Of course, while bosses and insurers would deem bad DNA a bane; gold diggers would view it a boon.

So, how do we keep this mess in perspective?

For starters, know that we’d be ill-advised to ever expect DNA miners to respect anyone’s privacy.

Also be mindful that a discovered, random microscopic abnormality does not necessarily mean that DNA’s alphabet will spell out a death sentence.

“A, C, G, and T are the “letters” of the DNA code; they stand for the chemicals adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T), respectively, that make up the nucleotide bases of DNA.”

Ergo, our best recourse is to not panic and keep our DNA private.
