issues of DNA privacy #dna


Judy Petersen
 

Hello,
    I would like it if someone could address issues of DNA privacy.  I have relatives who refuse to test for various reasons, all involving some aspect of privacy.  I can give them an answer as to why testing is important from a genealogical standpoint, but I can't give them good answers as to how their privacy is safeguarded.  They read lots of articles from non-genealogy sources as to how dangerous it is to have your DNA floating around "out there" and I don't know how to refute them.
     Or....is this a legitimate issue that is not currently being addressed sufficiently by the genealogical community?
     Thank you!
