As reported here recently, it has been reported that the frightening prospect of inserting a micro-chip into humans for the purpose of controlling who is and who is not entitled to medical care was part of the Obamacare legislation. Some called it fear mongering ignorance to suggest such a thing. Think again.
The Delray Beach, Fla.-based company VeriChip Corp. has announced plans to implant 200 Alzheimer's patients in Palm Beach County with radio-frequency identification chips as part of a pilot study to test the new technology.
The VeriMed microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice and contains a 16-digit patient identification number, which is available to anyone who scans the device with the right technology. This number can then be entered into a database to retrieve a patient's medical information. The FDA has approved the chip for human implantation.
The organization Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering (CASPIAN), owner of the web sites spychips.com and antichips.com, has accused VeriChip of testing a potentially unsafe technology on the "most vulnerable" segment of the population, questioning whether Alzheimer's patients are truly capable of giving their consent to be involved in such a study. CASPIAN has warned that the chips may cause adverse tissue reactions, problems with medical devices, electrical hazards and may place patients at risk of having their private information stolen.
Consumer health advocate Mike Adams added, "These Alzheimer's patients are being used as guinea pigs as part of a campaign that intends to eventually microchip the entire population. Today, it's senior citizens, pets and children... in the near future, it will be everyone." [Natural News]
Using microchips to mark people is based upon modern technology.
Here is how they used to do it:
