"States have been storing blood samples from newborns since blood screening for genetic defects and diseases began in the 1960s. The samples can help detect and treat a wide range of diseases, but in the age of the genome, the issue of storing samples has taken on unprecedented importance. Blood samples contain DNA that can be unambiguously linked to individuals, which may in the future present tempting data to governments, businesses and health providers."
This is a clip from a recent article on Wired.com. It makes you wonder why a government would pass legislation to archive medical histories of it's citizens. It certainly can't be due to the implementation of a national health care system. We spend so much money killing people that we're too broke to provide medical aid to our communities. I guess that's what they call Karma.
