    Longer article which outlines the problems surrounding medical record collection. Mostly this is about Google being the collection agency, but other large companies are also doing this (Amazon for example).

    DO NOTE that the source, The Wall Street Journal, has NOT been a trustworthy resource, but the story appears to have some truth in it. Take this article as a warning.

    As a Prepper, I don't see much that we can do to avoid being added to these mega collections, not what individuals can do to prevent their identity and data from being used for non-medical purposes. It would take a world-wide effort, backed by government (Trust not included) and legislative action. Too much money is behind this. It is ugly.
