    Hello Family,

    I watch those forensic file / cold case / investigate report kinda shows, and on one they were taking a poll ... Would you mind if authorities, private citizens, whoever ... retrieved your discarded DNA and used it in some testing, hunting, probing situation of their choice, without your knowledge?

    Now, i wouldn't want nobodee doin' nuth'n wit my DNA at all ... but it made me wonder how much DNA do we discard in the course of a day ... lol ... oh my gosh ... i mean, is this one more thing we should be cognizant of?

    How much DNA do you leave discarded outside of your home?

    :heart:

    well :eek:/

    I mean...after I'm gone...as much as I'm really trying to think about it :huh: (sarcasm, find some), I wouldn't have much say, if any, over what happens with my DNA. BUT if I had a choice, and if someone must use my DNA, I don't think I'd mind if it was used but only on a need basis like to save a life or help the helpless, things like that.

    For any other selfish gain, no. Don't touch the royal DNA.

    surely wouldn't want mines spreading trappin me for some murder
    and i bet i leave a trail around the house easy to get at and test it
    for whatever that have to really bug me and now i feel like i'm a victim

    shouldd be some kind of law that they can't just do that without a
    person knowledge or say but truely it's going on and happening wow !
