DNA Test: Don't Do It. Here Is Why by thebosstrevor1: 8:53am On Jan 03
Even though it is true that there are paternity frauds in our society, the reality is it is not so much like how social media are publicizing it.

Nigerian dna market is unregulated, dna is your human footprint, your personal data. Dna is not only about testing paternity but it can be use for many things.

I believe there is a plot on Nigerians by some Dna tech companies in Nigeria to raise the discussion about DNA Test in our society because they want to create a DNA bank For Nigerians.

For instance, there is a company called 54gene in lagos that is building an African DNA bank, the company raised almost 15 million dollars from Bill and merinda gates foundation. The company claim that the Greater availability of African genomic data could lead to medical breakthroughs for the African’s 1.2 billion people.

As far back as 2019, the company has almost 60,000 dna samples of Nigerians in their Bank, in addition, the company is based in Washington DC and Nigeria.

How many of you are concerned about your privacy, don't let social media discussions fool you, some of these dna companies might be the ones sponsoring the discussion so that people can go for Dna test, soon they will gather your data and also sell it to the highest bidder in the United states or to law enforcement agencies.

People should know what they spread online, you might be claiming woke, understand that your privacy matters and that anybody who has control over your dna data has control over you.

People will always have something to say. Damn Nigerian. Blah blah blah. Same way they said corona vaccines is antichrist mark. Tell me what exactly they will do with our DNA. These set of people always mislead the public with their silly orientations. As a man; If you like ignore DNA test and be raising a kid for your gateman. We pretends to be sensitive but we make fool of ourselves

Nonsense comment.

You want people to do dna test without thinking about data protection.

Nigerian dna market is unregulated.when you give your dna to companies, they have control over you.

You must be naive

The dna company 54 gene is headquartered in the United states, the dna laboratory in Nigeria was set up by a American company, those sponsoring the company are Americans and with support from American pharmaceutical companies

The United states government can get your dna data if they like, law enforcement can send a court order and your dna samples will be given to them.

Op you're right!
Google and it's parent company alphabet are doing the same thing in the West.. tricking adults and children under the guise of "know your ancestry" into taking DNA test!
Alot of people are saying they're doing it for future drug monopolies but I think it's something else..perhaps to perfect a biological weapon making it more deadly to any race..
Or they are looking for a particular bloodline.

You are the one that need the deep breathe.

Apparently, most of you are stuck here, what do you know about market regulations, what do you know about data protection even when most of you use your smart phones daily.

In the United states for instance, your dna sample is open to the government to access. And many dna companies sell dna info to government and third parties

Most of you are just emotional without thinking.

The world is one big market with American companies trying to get a pie on gullibles Nigerians who are ready to sell their soul.

Dna data are your human footprint also they can be sold to law enforcement and third parties.

Once you give someone your dna, he or she has private information about your medical a d family history, diseases, they can modify and engineer your Genetic, also it can be used to track you.

Giving your dna in an unregulated market like Nigeria is like giving your privacy and freedom out.

You might think dna testing is only about paternity test, it is more than that.

Another person that understands.

Many government are trying to create a dna bank of their citizens so they sponsor many private companies to collect these data.

Nigeria for instance, does not have rules for dna data protection.

American companies are already filling the gap in our unregulated market and they can get it by any means. These companies want African DNA samples and they are already compiling them.

The citizens who do not understand dna testing and data protection just give their dna data away without thinking, many of them think dna is only for paternity testing but they don't know that dna can be used for many things.

You would give 5 - 10mls of your blood to labs which have partnerships with USAID for routine laboratory tests from time to time, but a few drops for dna testing worries you?

Yes, it does btw, not every lab has partnership with USAID

Also, I got educated on the subject and now giving a few drops of my blood, hair or spit to any organization worries me.
