Intelligence Committee Member Warns of Possible Threat Targeting Americans’ DNA

By Jack Phillips


A Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee has warned Americans not to use DNA testing services, because the data could be collected to create bioweapons targeting individuals or groups.

“You can’t have a discussion about this without talking about privacy and the protection of commercial data, because expectations of privacy have degraded over the last 20 years,” Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.) said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on July 22.

“Young folks actually have very little expectation of privacy; that’s what the polling and the data show.”

“People will very rapidly spit into a cup and send it to 23andMe and get really interesting data about their background,” he said, referencing the popular DNA testing and ancestry service.
