The big reason you're not chipped yet. They cause cancer.
Albrecht makes a living riding the 'chips are evil, mkay' bandwagon, since she couldn't do it in her chosen field, I suppose.
So she started CASPIAN, and like other advocacy bandwagoners, CASPIAN cites Albrecht and vice versa, although they're the same person. And she really
went bats over the rat study that she cites a million times. But it's easy to give cancer to rats. That's why they use them for cancer studies. And it
turns out foreign body induced tumors are pretty common in rats. You can insert a piece of glass into a rat and voila, a tumor.
The question is, what's the rate in dogs? Not the anecdotal one, but a legit one? There aren't tons of pet dogs and cats lining up for cancer surgery
to remove them. Albrecht will tell you there was...and she'll cite The Story Of Leon, her one anecdotal data point. But it's not even clear if Leon's
(a Frenchie with a neck tumor) tumor was at the RFID site. And it's her one story.
Pretty much anything you stick under the skin and leave there can cause issues. It's possible to get tumors at pacemaker sites, for instance. You can
get infections, the thing can migrate, it can be an issue if you need an MRI. And it's not particularly necessary to have one, or useful enough to do.
So you don't see people doing it. Because it's pointless.
You DO know that RFID doesn't transmit anything, ever, right? There's just no signal coming from it at all. So if you're envisioning it being a radio
signal thing causing cancer at the site, that isn't going to happen.
