‘Tis the Season!
With Thanksgiving fast approaching and Black Friday just a day later, you know what that means: time to start your Christmas shopping.
A popular gift at Christmas is a DNA test kit. These simple kits let you spit in a test tube, send it to the lab, and get your genetic results in a few weeks. These test kits range in results from five generations to 60,000 years.
Genome sequencing test kits are all the rage. These claim to predict your susceptibility to future diseases or help you find your ideal diet.
While either option might seem like the perfect gift, you may want to reconsider.
Direct-to-consumer DNA test kits are notorious for having security issues. From data breaches and mail interceptions to companies giving forensic access or selling information to pharmacies, you can’t be certain that your genetic information won’t be stolen, examined, or leaked.
If you truly value privacy, then it’s best not to give a DNA kit as a present. Once your relative submits their genetic sample, there’s no going back.
DNA Paternity Testing knows the importance of protecting your privacy. We are not a direct-to-consumer company that makes an extra profit by selling your DNA to a pharmaceutical or food company. We keep your genetic information locked away, following all HIPAA safety standards. You can feel confident releasing your DNA to us.
