Wired News: Big Brother Wants to Be Diet Cop

I'm all for helping sick people get better, but you don't do it by going behind their backs and getting information about them. You do it by educating people to know what the risks are and encouraging people to care aobut their health. All this is going to do is discourage people from getting tested in the first place for fear of losing their privacy.

This is the beauty of socialized medicine. If I am paying for your care why can I not force to be healthier?

Here again you are talking about personal responsibility. As for education, give me break. If you do not know by now that a sedetary lifestyle combined with cheesey curly fries is going to kill you, I doubt seriously we convince you otherwise. Besides we can not teach reading, writing, and arithmetic.
