The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) issued a new report claiming that biotechnology can be used by those with the know-how "to create virulent pathogens that can target our food supply or even the human population."
"The powerful technologies harnessed by the bioeconomy also can lead to national security and economic vulnerabilities," the report goes on to suggest.
Building upon previous warnings from the NCSC, this latest report pegs China as an existential threat to the United States. It raises fresh concerns about the true purpose of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) "testing" kits that have been forced on Americans since early 2020.
"Would you want your DNA or other healthcare data going to an authoritarian regime with a record of exploiting DNA for repression and surveillance?" the report asks.
"For years, the People's Republic of China (PRC) has collected large healthcare data sets from the U.S. and nations around the globe, through both legal and illegal means, for purposes only it can control."
The PRC, the report goes on to claim, has been engaged in the mass collection of DNA from the Chinese. The regime has used this data to "carry out human rights abuses against domestic minority groups and support state surveillance," it says.

China has moved far outside its borders to collect healthcare data on Americans, the report claims, which poses risks to not just We the People but also the "economic and national security of the [United States]."
Michael Orlando, the acting director of the counterintelligence center, an arm of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), says that China's extensive track record of stealing whatever it wants should serve as a warning to everyone, everywhere.
"These technologies are critical and we cannot let what happened to other industries happen here," Orlando is quoted as saying.
According to Edward You, a national counterintelligence officer for emerging and disruptive technologies, China is currently attempting to construct the world's largest database of medical, health and genetic data.
"It's all about the data," You says. "There are national security implications we have to understand."
A Chinese corporate giant known as BGI reportedly developed a neonatal genetic test that the regime uses to harvest data from millions of people around the world. You warns that some of these data cover Americans and could easily be "transferred to the Chinese government."
A consumer genetics company called WuXi has invested in this operation, as well as in the DNA testing corporation 23andMe. As reported by Natural News, 23andMe was caught "verifying" lizard DNA as having come from Ashkenazi Jews.
"They are developing the world's largest bio database," You says about China and its various corporate partners. "Once they have access to your genetic data, it's not something you can change like a pin code."
Jacquie Cooke Haggarty, the deputy general counsel of WuXi, issued a statement downplaying You's warnings. She says that no data has been shared thus far, and that WuXi's investment in the technology represents just one percent of the company.
"All of our testing is performed and has always been performed in U.S.-based laboratories," she insists.
Even so, the NCSC report speaks for itself – assuming what it contains is actually true. It reveals how genetic data can be used by malicious actors to build bioweapons that capitalize on the "genetic vulnerabilities in a population."
"Large genetic databases that allow people's ancestry to be revealed and crimes to be solved also can be misused for surveillance and societal repression," it says.
"The PRC has a documented history of exploiting DNA for genetic surveillance and societal control of minority populations in Xinjiang, China," the NCSC's earlier report adds.
"China's access to U.S. healthcare and genomic data poses serious privacy and national security risks to the U.S."
With that said, it is probably smart to be extremely wary of all at-home "ancestry" testing kits, which more than likely are Chinese data-harvesting kits in disguise.
"Designer viruses, courtesy of the CCP," wrote one Natural News commenter, CCP of course referring to the Chinese Communist Party.
"It was reported a long time ago that with a specific person's genome, or a specific ethnic / racial stock, specific bioweapons were possible for specific people or groups of people, and that such a thing could be put in something like a common cold virus and eventually lead to the death of the target while not affecting even anyone else," wrote another.
