Congress passes bill to protect employees from genetic discrimination

Please read the fine details.  Yes, this bill protects you from your employer or health insurance discriminating against you because of information found in your genetic code. 

BUT, it also allows the government at all levels access to all genetic information and decreases the need for consent to collect genetic material from you.

If my genetic code is not “private” I don’t know what is.
