    I am thinking about doing the 23andme testing anonymously, as best I can. I really don't want them to have my genetic data linked to my name, and even more so my child's genetic data linked to a name forever. Trying to avoid the possiblity of our data being used against us when we try to obtain life insurance, health ins, jobs, etc. I realize there are laws against this use in health insurance, but laws don't always stop big corporations.

    What would be the downsides to doing it anonymously?
