Feds to Give All Your Health Data to Researchers

Mental records, blood, urine samples, physical measurements, even DNA…

(Bob Unruh, WND) The federal government has just launched a 10-year, $1.5 billion project for which researchers want your information.

All of it.

Medical records, mental-health records, lifestyle details, personal habits, physical measurements, blood pressure, height, weight, blood and urine samples, details on health-care visits, procedures, medications, and electronic health records, among others.

Oh, and DNA, too.

It’s called All of Us and scientists say they want at least one million people to be under observation on an ongoing basis.

Explains one federal report, the effort by the NIH has the goal of developing “a 1,000,000 person-plus cohort of individuals across the country willing to share their biology, lifestyle, and environmental data for the purpose of research.”

A “soft launch” already has been accomplished, and partners already part of the plan include the TransAmerica Precision Medicine Consortium, Biobank, San Ysidro Health, University of Arizona, University of Pittsburgh and a long list of federal agencies.

The plan has drawn a skeptical assessment from Twila Brase, whose Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom long has expressed concerns about the privacy of health information once it’s turned over to researchers.

She’s also preparing to release “Big Brother in the Exam Room,” through her website, a book on the same topic.

She’s concerned that people won’t realize what is involved in the research when they sign a consent form giving the government virtually unlimited access to their health records – even those they don’t know about…

    Greetings!
    “You show me Yours, I’ll show you mine.”
    In yet another well intentioned “program”, funded by the taxpayers, designed and instituted by the “visionaries” enshrined within the federal government, enacted to “do what’s best for us”, irregardless of our own desires and expectations, resulting in the populace being even more “unfaithful” to themselves and untruthful and dishonest, on any questionnaire, for fear of rejection, repression and exclusion.

      Is this one ;of the programs the Dems wanted in the Budget? Defund this!!!

      Irregardless means not regardless so the statement should be, “regardless of our own desires…” meaning with no regard to our desires. Sorry, it’s a huge pet peeve of mine. I do agree with you, though and have had multiple conversations with my conservative, republican mother about government intrusion, control and harm to its citizens. She’s always thought I was crazy stating the government would never do such things to us. Sadly, she was diagnosed with lung cancer four months ago that had already spread. She had five radiation treatments to her brain and then another 5 that were doubled in intensity so, basically they fried her brain to the point that she went from being a woman who spent all day, every day, on volunteer charitable activities and multiple church and community committees to someone who could no longer drive and could do little more than sit in her recliner all day. It took them thirteen weeks to determine what type of chemo to treat her with and the first round was so aggressive it poisoned her body so badly she went into the hospital to bring her pain, hemoglobin, white blood count, potassium, blood pressure, and multiple other complications, back to normal. She never left the hospital and we buried her yesterday. We all firmly agree (mostly based on the conversations we had with her oncologist in which he was extremely vague and had no sense of urgency) that her age of 75 determined that she was too old to treat correctly according to obamascare’s death panel. Government-sanctioned murder of a woman who did so much to help the poor in her community. Those being studied will be gone at the first sign of disease.

        Greetings Ma’am,
        Please except my condolences on your Mother’s passing and I Pray that You and her family members are comforted knowing that her “new” life has begun in the Kingdom of Heaven. My own Ma, that’s what she liked, left to be with the LORD twenty years ago now, and there is not a day passes that I don’t think of her, especially in this month, as her birthday is the sixteenth. We will all be reunited one day, by the Grace of God and for His Glory.
        As far as the “double negative”, although some do recognize the grammatical correctness, I suppose it’s a “habit” I picked up and never really thought about, but regardless of my intent, I do so not wish to appear ignorant, therefore your advice is greatly appreciated.
        Warmest Regards and Blessings Ma’am

        • youcanthavemyfreedom

          Thanks for the kind words. I suppose I’ll be missing my mother as long as you have yours. We take comfort in the fact that she is in Heaven now, no longer in pain, walking hand in hand with my dad as he shows her around and that she is with God in a place that is so much better than here where it just gets uglier and meaner by the day. I can’t wait to join them.

    So… I suppose we are all to become unwitting organ donors in a national data base for the expansion of their organ harvesting business now that their other cocaine industry is drying up? Thanks cannibals and globalists… or is that redundant?…

    • Askjrsk

      Dead organs aren’t valuable on the market. Organ donors are encouraged that they can be harvested.

      • Gregg Parker

        Right… so stay out of Chicago area hotels… big market for people and their organs. They cut em up right in the kitchens…

        • Mountain_Dew_518

          Is that what they are using for barbecue now a-days? Just thinking about the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” that took place in Irondale, Alabama.

          • Gregg Parker

            Barf!….That’s Mr. Green Tomatoes to you… Chicago has been pushing for years to be the transplant capital of the world. They actually got caught with pants down at the Rosemont.. big cover up… even had guys with coolers waiting in the lobby! Rob Emanuel the Don of black murders is the king of harvesting.. such a sad place that really needs to be invaded and scrubbed clean… horrible things go on there…

          • Mountain_Dew_518

            LOL. Exactly why I never go to Chicago & advise my friends to bypass at all cost the state of IL.

          • Gregg Parker

            Right on Dewey!!

  • Askjrsk

    So what’s in all those flu shots, anyway? And all those medications pharmaceutical advertisers tell you to ask your doctor about? Death suddenly, did you notice, is always an unfortunate side affect in a small percentage of those sampled. ha!

    THIS WILL BECOME A BIG MINUS FOR THE POPULATIONS . IT WILL CONTROL EVERYTHING YOU DO IN DAILY LIFE . YOUR HEALTH CARD WILL CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR BUYING THINGS YOU TAKE FOR GRANITE RIGHT NOW . I SAY NO !!! IT’S NOT THE RIGHT THING TO DO . TRUMP SHOULD STOP THIS .

  • CommonSenseReborn

    Are any of you out there still gullible enough to believe your doctor when they have you sign those HIPAA forms they give you telling you your health information and treatment is private….Nothing is private!! You would think even Democrats would care about a big government that’s so out of control that nothing is private… oh I just answered my own dilemma….they’re DUMOCRATS!

      When you walk into your doctors office it is the same as walking into a gov. surveillance office.
      The doctor/patient privacy is long dead. Everything is recorded by camera and recording. I won’t divulge much of what is going on with me to the doctors because of it.
      Try talking to Doc about the chemtrail flu just to scare the pants off him/her. One doctor immediately went into a question mode. He asked what one of my favorite TV shows is and I told him The Waltons. He then asked me to name all the characters. All this to shut me up about chemtrails because of the recording devices.
      I have had several varied ways used when you discuss something that the docs think might get them in hot water.
      One physician was honest with me when I asked something uncomfortable of him when he responded, “everything that goes on in this office is recorded and I also think everything in my home.”
      Privacy does not exist in America! Believe it and act accordingly. Your car is also recording your conversations.
      God bless and keep us safe until we get to Heaven. In Jesus name, I pray.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        This is where I wonder if my computer is recording conversations as well. This country has become so technological for our own good that it is scary at times. I wish we had privacy (of course wishing is one thing; reality is another) in America. I pray that privacy will be returned to this country before we all go nuts. You are so right to say “God bless and keep us safe until we get to Heaven.” Let me add one more “Let’s keep the faith that God will be with us at all times.”

        • senior65gal .

          Certainly your computer and TV and so many other things, including your car.
          Go to the “Family survival” website and search, “wiretapped America” booklet”. Author Frank Mitchell

            Guess I am glad I don’t drive. Of course when I have to go out, I have to take the bus; they have a camera on every passenger that rides the bus. I will check out that website. This whole thing makes me scared out of my wits.

          • senior65gal .

            Scripture repeatedly assures us not to fear. “Fear not for I AM with you.”
            Go to your concordance and look up ‘fear.’ Then read your Bible and study and pray on the verses you are led to read. I pray, “Father, open KJ’s mind to your word and make your presence known in her journey. In Jesus name, I pray.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Could you please give me the website to “Family survival” please? Sometimes I forget that part of Scripture when I am scared of something. Thank you for reminding me of that. I think my mother’s parents did exactly what you did; they read the Bible each day — I am sure they prayed over the verses that they were led to pray. Thank you for your prayer.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      Sometimes I wonder if that HIPAA form is keeping my health information really private. Have we come to a point where we can’t trust anyone anymore? I can’t help but wonder anymore. I feel like I don’t even recognize my own country when I read something like this article. Almost makes me scared to see the doctor.

      • CommonSenseReborn

        The answers to your 2 questions are NO and Yes

  • Kathryn Jordan

    So who the h*ll came up with this idea? The Feds don’t need our medical history. What are trying to do? See if any of us are organ donors? Unfortunately, I can’t donate at least three of my organs; the rest I could. The Feds don’t need to know that. Are they forming a “database” for this just like they do with criminals? I always thought health care was between patient and doctor. I guess to the Feds it isn’t anymore.

  • SA Ander

    Can’t wait for the doctor to ask.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    It already seems to me that we HAVE become a Totalitarian Government under our current leadership in Congress and in the White House. Requesting this kind of information on all of us, albeit Republican or Democrat, is an invasion of privacy. It is a BLOW to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Then again, this Congress and White House would not understand that phrase. Are they all afraid that Lincoln’s ghost will appear in their dreams? in the White House? the Senate and the House? I bet every Republican is afraid of Lincoln’s ghost appearing to them and telling them how embarrassed he is of how his party has become.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    Thanks for the website. I’ll check it out.
