The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration are nothing more than taxpayer-funded marketing arms for the medical industrial complex.

A forthcoming report in Science magazine argues that patient consent and confidentiality are under fire, after the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics recently adjusted its formal recommendations to doctors that, for the most part, now leave the patient out of the decision-making process over how much data researchers can mine from their unique genetic codes.
