Some of you will probably find a take-home D.N.A kit under the tree this week, but you might think twice before using it

The Pentagon is warning active service members that these tests could put their security at risk.

Yahoo News released the memo with the warning.

Officials say personal and genetic information could get into the wrong hands, and put missions at risk.

They also say these kits can provide inaccurate health information- since service members are required to report health changes, that could lead to a host of issues.
