In the not too distant future, your body may be reduced to a string of 1s and 0s.
Your genome will be sequenced; the bacterial demography of your gut polled, your steps tracked, your calories counted, and your brainwaves monitored. All this will be digitally analyzed and stored somewhere “out there” on a bank of servers.
Your health will depend on which information you surrender in return for the ability to diagnose and defeat cancer at stage 0, knock out genetic conditions, preempt diabetes or heart disease—even become more self aware to improve your mood.
Freely sharing our most intimate health details may feel more than a little uncomfortable. Understandably so. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
