There's your problem right there.

Medical data must be opt IN. No exceptions. No bleeding heart stories about potential lives saved or medical breakthroughs etc. I bet not a one of you can tell who/what eventually accessed this private medical data and where it went/who else has copies/why. This sort of thing demonstrates exactly why opt OUT should not be permitted.
