Fla.-made microchip to be used in volunteers with memory loss

The Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
Four hospitals in Puerto Rico will begin implanting a Florida.m.ade microchip the size of a rice grain in patients who suffer from illnesses that cause memory loss, like Alzheimer's disease, a newspaper reported Sunday.

The hospitals will start using the microchip, made by the Delray Beach, Fla.-based Verichip Corp., in August, according to El Nuevo Dia. It is inserted in the forearm, costs $200 and is voluntary.

"It is a way to offer an additional service because the chip it going to be used on a population that has memory problems ... or great health problems," said Nelson Martinez, coordinator of operations for Hostos Medical Services.

VeriChip is the only company with U.S. federal approval to implant such chips in people. The company has implanted more than 2,500 people worldwide with chips that give hospitals access to their identification, which is used to retrieve medical information from an Internet database.

They certainly are starting this for our own good and protection- No doubt everyday, there are people who will see this as an advance in science and will be willing to do it. In no time at all, the target will become the general public who have all their marbles and we wont be able to stop it. "They" will find an excuse for all of us to have this implant.
If you notice, it started with pets, and it is snowballing from there.....

Will we be able to say "NO"? They are now targeting the vulnerable, the young, the sick, etc. IMO, it wont be long before this is mandatory for all.
