More Adam Tanner! In this second part of my interview with the author of Our Bodies, Our Data, we start exploring the implications of having massive amounts of online medical  data. There’s much to worry about.

With hackers already good at stealing health insurance records, is it only a matter of time before they get into the databases of the drug prescription data brokers?

My data privacy paranoia about all this came out in full force during the interview. Thankfully, Adam was able to calm me down, but there’s still potential for frightening possibilities, including political blackmail.

Is the answer more regulations for drug data? Listen to the rest of the interview below to find out, and follow Adam on Twitter, @datacurtain, to keep up to date.
