An experiment in privacy

To test the Google Health privacy policy, I plan on adding all known conditions, diseases, and ailments to my profile.

The theory is that if some drug company contacts me with an offer to participate in a drug trial, then I'll know that Google sold my data to the highest bidder. If not, I will continue to trust Google with my calendar info.

I plan on working through alphabetically as the interface for adding conditions is slow & clunky (why not a 'Select All' option?)

I've learned to live with the fissures, but I do confess that the pap smear results have me concerned. And the 'premature' thing? That was just once!
