Google launched their long awaited Google Health this week. One of the features is to allow individuals to store their medical records with Google. The idea of online medical records has an appeal but the application has significant security risks.

Every other Google user agreement says that the data is the property of Google. That means they can sell your information and place ads on your records. I don’t know about you but I am not so comfortable with a business having this personal information and then using it for marketing.
