How bio-hacking is changing your future

27 Jun 2017

BLM healthcare partner, Greg McEwen has spoken to TechRadar about the recent developments in healthcare technology, most specifically Genomics and associated risk.

Greg said, "There are serious questions here around ownership of this data, and the challenges of securing and managing these volumes of highly personal information are considerable.

“If you are on the cutting edge of research of this type, you could for example end up with data that will predict an individual’s risk of developing cancer; if you were susceptible to a serious disease who would you want to know? Your doctor, your work, your insurance company? Would you even want to know yourself? It raises questions that require wider debate – there are no easy answers.”
