23andMe Inc., the Google Inc.-backed DNA analysis company co-founded by Anne Wojcicki, was told by U.S. regulators to halt sales of its main product because itís being sold without "marketing clearance or approval."

[bloomberg.com...]

...not just backed by Google -- the company was started by Sergey Brin's wife. And people are worried about search, cookie and ad beacon data being sold to marketers?
