Default Microchipped Drugs

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/he...-dose-due.html

(NaturalNews) The age of pharmaceutical microchipping is now upon us. Novartis AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world, has announced a plan to begin embedding microchips in medications to create "smart pill" technology.

The microchip technology is being licensed from Proteus Biomedical of Redwood City, California. Once activated by stomach acid, the embedded microchip begins sensing its environment and broadcasting data to a receiver worn by the patient. This receiver is also a transmitter that can send the data over the internet to a doctor.

The idea behind all this is to create "smart pills" that can sense what's happening in the body and deliver that information to the patient's doctor. Novartis plans to start microchipping its organ transplant anti-rejection drugs and then potentially expand microchipping to other pharmaceuticals in its product lineup. This same technology could soon end up in pills made by other drug companies, too.


The best laid plans...
It all sounds good on the surface, but NaturalNews readers no doubt have lots of skeptical questions about this technology. For starters, Novartis apparently isn't planning on conducting any clinical trials that might take into account the safety issues of swallowing microchips. "Novartis does not expect to have to conduct full-scale clinical trials to prove the new products work," reports Reuters. "Instead, it aims to do so-called bioequivalence tests to show they are the same as the original."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/...6A754720101108

But I have a question: What chemicals or heavy metals are contained in the microchip itself? A microchip that transmits data obviously must have a power source, meaning it needs to have a very small battery or capacitor of some sort. The materials used in capacitors and batteries, to my knowledge, are toxic to the human body and should never be eaten.

Microchips are not food, and to swallow them seems risky to your health, especially if you're swallowing several microchips per day.


Data privacy
Another huge concern with microchips that transmit data is data privacy. If these microchips are broadcasting information, then obviously that information can be picked up by anything nearby, including potentially unscrupulous individuals or organizations who might put it to a nefarious use.

For example, suppose a local pharmacy store installs a microchip signal detector in their main door entrance in order to track people who are broadcasting medication data. They could then theoretically decode that data and use it to determine what health condition that customer might be suffering and then push competing generic pharmaceuticals as a replacement.

Government agents could carry "pharma microchip scanners" that determine what pills you're taking right now. This could be used to violate your privacy by sharing that data with other government agencies or it could even be sold off to third-party marketing companies.

I very much doubt the data being broadcast by the microchips in these pills will be encrypted because encryption requires real processing power, and there isn't room for much of a CPU or power source inside these tiny microchips. Most likely, they are going to broadcast raw signal data that can be detected and decoded quite easily.


Remember to take your meds
But the really scary part about these microchipped medications is that this technology will be used to make sure people are taking their medication. Drug companies lose billions of dollars a year (in their minds) from patients not remembering to take their pills. Of course, half the reason they can't remember to take their pills is because many pharmaceuticals damage cognitive function, but that's another story.

So this smart-pill microchip technology will likely be used to track what pills patients have taken so that they can be "gently reminded" to take more pills they may have forgotten. In the marketing business, this is called a "continuity program." It's a way to make sure repeat sales happen on a regular basis.

In this context, microchipping the pills benefits the drug companies, not necessarily the patients. This is especially true when considering those pharmaceuticals that are harmful to human health -- and we all know the pharmaceutical market is full of pills that have later been found to be extremely dangerous or even deadly (Vioxx, anyone?).


Coming soon: Police drug scanners and employer drug scanners
Now, there may be one interesting side effect to all this: Employers who are interviewing potential job candidates might be able to buy (or make) simple drug scanning devices that detect the presence of a pharmaceutical microchip broadcast signal. (You could probably make one in your garage from electronic parts purchased at Radio Shack.)

This might be very useful for employers who don't want to hire people taking medications. They invite you in for an interview and quietly scan for drug broadcast data. A red light tells them you're broadcasting medication data, and they calmly tell you the interview is over and "we'll get back to you."

With employers right now drowning in health insurance costs, this could provide a simple, easy way for corporations to avoid taking on anyone who might create a cost burden on their health insurance plans (from their point of view). I don't necessarily agree with this use of the technology; I'm just saying this is one way in which it is likely to be used by employers to screen out employees who are on medications.

Cops, too, could use a similar scanning device to determine if a driver at the scene of an accident might be medication impaired. Now this is a use I actually do agree with. Today's roadways are filled with mentally impaired drivers who are doped up on medications. The problem is actually far worse than drunk drivers, by the way, and yet virtually nothing is being done to combat this problem of "medicated drivers." (Most people don't even know the problem exists.)

If people taking medications are broadcasting that fact through all the little microchips they swallow, then scanning for the presence of medications is simple. It's even easier than a breathalyzer test because it requires no action on the part of the test subject. The cop just presses a button, waits two seconds, and can then determine whether you're broadcasting medication data. At that point, you might be arrested under suspicion of "driving while medicated."


Another reason not to take meds
There are clearly a lot of unanswered questions and even some potential risks involved in taking microchipped pharmaceuticals. For some people, privacy issues may be the biggest factor of all, because who wants to broadcast the fact that they're taking meds in the first place?

I don't take any pharmaceuticals, obviously, and most NaturalNews readers avoid them, too. The fact that drugs will soon be microchipped is yet another good reason to find more holistic ways to take care of your health. Don't bet your life (and your privacy) on Big Pharma's pills. Choose a healthy, holistic lifestyle based on nutritious, organic foods, regular exercise and the avoidance of all man-made (synthetic) chemicals, and you most likely won't ever need pharmaceuticals for your entire life.

The age of microchipping people and microchipping medications is now upon us. Given what the TSA is doing right now with naked body scanners (http://www.naturalnews.com/030100_n...), you can only imagine what Big Brother will do with any medication data you might be broadcasting from inside your body.

In fact, the very idea that there is a microchip inside your body that's broadcasting data might get you flagged as a possible terrorist by the TSA, which would then proceed to finger your genitals and palm your breasts as part of their new "enhanced pat-down" groping technique. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030302_T...)

The best way to avoid all this risk is to simply eat your veggies and drink your superfoods. Don't become a trackable, traceable, microchipped subject of the medical industry that wants to turn your body into a chemical profit center.

An excellent thread!!!!

I think Microchipping things IS JUST STUPID..... Its intrusiveness,all it is!!

We're near enough trackable 24/7 now through email / smartphones / facebook......this is just another way to track us.......I'm surprised they haven't started chipping newborns......maybe they have........what do I know........

The Canadian government (provinces) track the usage of all prescription meds and data of every person who gets a prescription filled by any pharmacy in your province. I've tried every trick in the book (short of travelling to another province/the US to fill them-this would allow the Rx to be filled bypassing the system, at least for now), but they will make it pretty much impossible to opt out.

I have a genetic condition and have been on life saving meds from childhood. I live a clean organic lifestyle (lots of supplements) but I know in my case I need to rely on Big Pharma to live, which is both a ironically a blessing and a curse. Scary.

I have tried to fight the system because I firmly believe it intrudes on a patient's privacy. All of your meds are tracked, even if you pay 100% of the cost out of pocket. Furthermore, pharmacists will not openly disclose this fact without a pointed discussion, and the whole monitoring system is rather deceitful for lack of a better term. My spouse was shocked at the blatant tactics used to try and sign patients up for more monitoring.

I can certainly understand monitoring for things like those with severe dangerous mental illness on certain medications or those abusing prescription pain medications. But everyone else should be able to opt out. I know what allergies I have, I know what meds I take, and I pay for a special medical alert bracelet. I don't need the government keeping track of prescriptions without my say...creepy and intrusive.

Edit: This is just the first step in a nationwide electonic health record system which is in the works. While in theory this is advertised as a good idea (less drug interactions, access to previous tests, etc) it is NOT. Why? Because I have seen the EMR system in the US. Filled with errors, misktakes in notes, medical history, etc. No better than paper files, and it follows you everywhere. And this will all be on record with most patients having no idea of all of the errors their file contains. For example, I have never smoked, but one of my EMR records said that I had a history of heavy smoking. Another said that I did not have a certain condition when another doctor stated I did (with supporting lab data). From where they got these contradictions I have no idea. Since every doctor you see would now have access to this data, they can label you non-compliant about your health to at high risk for cancer, requiring expensive testing, etc. they otherwise would not perform (in the US). Not the best example, but you can draw your own concerns...

What is amazing is that people will find this invasion of privacy acceptable.In my opinion, there is and can never be, anything acceptable about being monitored.

I wonder how big the microchips are-could they get out of the gut and move around the body?Our bodies are electrical and physical what about all the transmission waves.Could our electrical circuits be compromised?The chips can transmit so it figures being able to receive is only a step away and what if one of those chips is faulty,and transmits wrong data?The poor patient would be f....d.Nightmare scenario- Chip programmed to home in on intense electrical activity.Leaves the gut and migrates to and lodges in the brain.Once there it could be made to transmit on wavelengths/pulses that could overide/become part of brain 'function'.Zombies?What a way to control the masses! and all ushered in under the blanket of improvements on human health!!

erh, there was a thread and some links about hospitals taking dna sample of newborns for many years now for a database (without the publics knowledge) . Sorry no links, but it was happening in the usa I believe. No time to seach for it for you, but it's out there this info

I would like to confirm this. When you (or your child) is tested for ANY genetic condition (which some are now screened for at birth), your DNA is added to a "DNA bank". In fact, the option is checked right off on the form. While I believe a waiver is given before any test, I have NEVER seen it explained to someone that their DNA from the test will be banked. They have you sign the consent, and check off the box, without even mentioning it to the patient.

This is in Canada.

My understanding is that the "official" explanation is that will be used to track the long term interaction bewtween genes and health, and/or track genetic disease.

IMHO this is bullshit and a huge invasion of privacy to the nth degree. I find it shocking that us sheeple have essentially no say as to if we want to opt in or not....it's no wonder most people don't trust the medical profession and it's not hard to see why...

I've never heard of routine labwork banking DNA in Canada, but then again, who knows...we certainly wouldn't...

Extremely slippery slope here. Let's not get on it.
