Google Spying On Our Health

Google has a plan to spy on its users and report search details to the U.S. government. The project is for Flu Trends. It's monitoring searches for flu-related keywords to determine whether a pandemic outbreak is occurring in a specific geographic region.

The data is then reported in real time to the U.S. government, where offices like the CDC can take action to halt the outbreak. What's really happening? Google is snooping on the search queries of private users and reporting to the federal government!

What's next? If you search for "vaccine side effects," will you be visited by health authorities who will have you arrested for resisting mandatory vaccines? Read NY Times article.
