I trust you all had a good feed on the 25th, stuffed yourselves silly with various treats and drinks.
Well done, you're playing right into the hands of those who want you to be CHIPPED!
Okay, don't worry too much, it's a way off yet, but let me explain!
(And for the record, I did MORE than my fair share of helping them this
It has been well documented and easy to see that there is an Obesity Epidemic
taking hold of most of
the Western World.
The major causes of our slide into tubbiness are obviously our diet and sedentary
. The long and the short of it is we eat too much crap and don't do enough exercise.
I always thought that TPTB wanted us to not be this way, were actively fighting this trend and the sheer cost to our Governments and our health were
the reasons why.
I'm having second thoughts though, here's my hypothesis!
I'm sure by now that most of you are aware of the recent name-change of everyone's favourite bogeyman
As discussed in the thread VeriChip (CHIP) is now to be known as PositiveID (PSID)
BeyondPerception, too much bad press I guess.
From the PositiveID site:
PositiveID Corporation was formed on November 10, 2009 through the merger of VeriChip Corporation and Steel Vault Corporation. PositiveID provides
unique health and security identification tools to protect consumers and businesses.
PositiveID represents the convergence of a pioneer in personal health records and the first and only FDA-cleared implantable microchip for patient
identification, VeriChip, with a leader in the identity security space, Steel Vault, focused on access and security of consumers' critical
An integral part of the foundation of PositiveID is its radio-frequency identification (RFID) implantable microchip for patient identification,
the VeriChip. The company's RFID microchip traces back to the events of September 11, 2001, when New York firemen wrote their badge ID numbers on
their chests in case they were found injured or unconscious. It was evident there was a serious need for personal information in emergency situations
and the product, modeled after a similar microchip used in pets, evolved from there. The company received FDA clearance for the microchip in October
I just added that for any ATSers who weren't yet aware of these guys or what they're about.
Right back to the main gist of my thread.
There have been a few News Items involving PositiveID in the last few months. Again taken from their own website:
PositiveID Corporation Partners with HealthScreenDirect, LLC to Offer Health Link to 120,000 New
Patients per Year and Study Health Link’s Role in Improving Disease Management
DELRAY BEACH, FL – December 22, 2009 – PositiveID Corporation ("PositiveID" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PSID) announced today that it has
entered into a strategic partnership with HealthScreenDirect, LLC ("HSD"), to create a prospective, randomized, comparative clinical study that will
seek to address improving disease management through the use of appropriate, concise, and up-to-date patient health information available to both
practitioners caring for diabetic, hypertensive and obese patients and the patients themselves through the utilization of PositiveID's personal
health record (Health Link) and an electronic medical records system. PositiveID will also offer Health Link to all HSD members, totaling over 120,000
new patients per year.
HSD provides millions of Americans direct access to diabetes and cholesterol screenings and educational content. These important health
screenings are offered through a convenient process at nationally recognized, certified labs that provide confidential results for the patient through
HSD's secure web site and by mail. HSD also provides a more comprehensive wellness program for corporations, associations and organizations across
America, which includes onsite health screenings and testing for diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity.
For the lazy among you, the main points:
-PositiveID announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with HealthScreenDirect (HSD)
-To use PID technology and HSD database in the areas of health screenings and testing for diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity.
So in other words, PositiveID wants to better the care of the Obese
, through the use of appropriate, concise, and
up-to-date patient health information
, in other words their RFID chip.
Of course it is well know that Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol are some of the many problems/causes associated with Obesity.
I think that this will be a major weapon in convincing the masses into getting one of these RFID chips.
In fact, they have already got one Diabetes CHIPPING programme up and running.
PositiveID Corporation and RECEPTORS LLC Announce Expansion of Their Exclusive License Agreement
to Develop an In Vivo Glucose-Sensing RFID Microchip for Animals
–December 2, 2009 – PositiveID and its development partner RECEPTORS LLC , a technology company whose AFFINITY by DESIGN™ chemistry
platform can be applied to the development of selective binding products, announced today their intention to expand their exclusive license agreement
to include Patent No. 7,504,364 titled "Methods of Making Arrays and Artificial Receptors" and Patent No. 7,469,076 "Sensors Employing
Combinatorial Artificial Receptors," to use in conjunction with PositiveID’s Patent No. 7,125,382 entitled "Embedded Bio-Sensor System” to
develop an in vivo glucose-sensing radio frequency microchip for animals, primarily dogs and cats.
Roughly 1 in 400 dogs and cats are diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, and there are an estimated 150 million pets in the U.S.
Randolph K. Geissler, CEO of PositiveID Animal Health, said, “We are pleased to continue our development with Receptors to include the
glucose-sensing microchip for animals. Diabetes in pets, especially cats, is becoming more common, and the availability of a glucose-sensing microchip
could play a significant role in the care of these animals.”
150,000,000, that's a lot of canines and felines, but I'm sure this is just a test run for the main event, You and I!
Lets have a look at Patent No. 7,125,382 shall we:
US Patent 7125382 - Embedded bio-sensor system
US Patent Issued on October 24, 2006
Estimated Patent Expiration Date: Icon_subject May 20, 2024
a bio-sensor system which utilizes radio frequency identification technology and which includes a remote transponder in wireless communication with an
implantable passively-powered on-chip transponder. The bio-sensor system is specifically adapted to provide a substantially stable and precise sensor
reference voltage to a sensor assembly that is included with the on-chip transponder. The remote transponder is also configured to remotely receive
data representative of a physiological parameter of the patient as well as identification data and may enable readout of one or more of the
physiological parameters that are measured, processed and transmitted by the on-chip transponder upon request by the remote transponder. The precision
and stability of the sensor reference voltage is enhanced by the specific circuit architecture of the glucose sensor to allow for relatively accurate
measurement of the physiological parameter such as measurement of glucose concentration by a glucose sensor without the use of a
No mention of pets there, hm are pets called patients at the vets? I'm not sure about that one, but I'll let it go.
Anyway, so can you see the bigger picture? We have a population getting fatter by the generation, unhealthier and more obese.
We have an Elite who's goal is to implant us all with RFID chips in order to tighten their grip on us.
And we have a BioTech firm, planning on implanting diabetes chips in millions of pets, while at the same time making deals with Health Care Firms with
millions of Americans on their books.
Maybe patmac was right:
Microchiping included in Healthcare Bill?
All the best ATS, don't overdo it too much now!!!!!!
