By Obama and his admin (per the Obama Stimulus) taking bureaucratic control of our medical records, convert them to computer and monitor the level, quality, and demographics of care~I think we are ALL involved in a Government Study... So what's another study, right? At least this one people have a choice on whether they want to participate.

Well, since I worked for a study that was funded by the NIH I would be willing to consider it, if I were in their target group. However, I would have to research everything further and I would ask them a lot of questions before I signed anything. It is very similar to the study I worked for except ours focuses only on the possible environmental causes of childhood diabetes. I think what people have to realize is that you have to go through certain protocol to run a study of this size (or any study). If it really did find causes for some illnesses, etc I would certainly like to see what they come up with.
