23andMe

Another take on the 23andme case is found on tech.fortune.cnn.com in an article by Ryan Bradley titled “The curious case of 23andMe”. He states “The FDA approval process for medical devices is insane. Even the FDA knows it’s way too long and way too expensive.”

I have to ask what’s to approve about a bottle you spit in or a swab to wipe your cheek. This same technology has been used for years without the FDA getting involved.

Back in grade school’ I was in a study regarding how many children used tobacco. They had us put a sponge in our mouth, capturing our saliva, same technology, and they didn’t even have to get parental approval.
