The Prenuvo scans can provide early warnings for potential health problems but don’t replace regular checkups with your health care provider. Also, remember that while these scans are powerful, they’re not 100% foolproof. There could be false positives or negatives, like any medical test.WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER CARRY THESE THINGS IN YOUR WALLETPrivacy concernsAnother major concern with technologies such as this is – privacy. The scans generate a vast amount of personal health data that is stored and processed to provide you with results. And while companies like Prenuvo ensure that your data is secure and private, data breaches in the digital world are an unfortunate reality. The question then becomes: Who has access to your health data? And how secure is it? While health data is typically anonymized and encrypted, the risk, however small, is there. As with all things digital, it’s a constant battle to stay a step ahead of cyber threats.FOR MORE OF MY TECH TIPS & SECURITY ALERTS, SUBSCRIBE TO MY FREE CYBERGUY REPORT NEWSLETTER BY HEADING TO CYBERGUY.COM/NEWSLETTERMORE: PET HEALTH BREAKTHROUGH APP CAN DETECT WHEN YOUR DOG OR CAT IS SICK One major risk of AI body scans is privacy and possible data breaches.
