Destron Fearing is a global leader in innovative animal identification. With presence in over 40 countries worldwide we seek to provide real world ID solutions to match the ever increasing complexity and opportunities related to animal identification.
Since 1945 we have provided innovative products addressing the needs of livestock producers, companion animal owners, horse owners, wildlife managers and government agencies.
Destron Fearing provides a full complement of radio frequency identification products and software solutions to automate the collection of critical livestock production and carcass information.
Individual and herd information can then be easily transferred between all parties involved in the production and retail of meat products.
Information sharing allows the food industry to meet the discriminating demands of the market place.
Quote from : Wikipedia : VeriChip
VeriChip is the only Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved human-implantable radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip.
It is marketed by VeriChip Corporation, a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, and it received United States FDA approval in 2004.
About twice the length of a dime, the device is typically implanted between the shoulder and elbow area of an individual’s right arm.
Once scanned at the proper frequency, the VeriChip responds with a unique 16 digit number which could be then linked with information about the user held on a database for identity verification, medical records access and other uses.
The insertion procedure is performed under local anesthetic in a physician's office.
As an implanted device used for identification by a third party, it has generated controversy and debate.
Destron Fearing, a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, initially developed the technology for the VeriChip.
In the beginning of 2007, Verichip Corporation created Xmark, its corporate identity for healthcare products.
Xmark incorporates the Hugs and the Halo system of infant protection; the RoamAlert system of wandering protection; the MyCall emergency response system; and the Assetrac asset tracking system.

Quote from : Wikipedia : Food and Drug Administration
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of the United States federal executive departments, responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of food safety, tobacco products, dietary supplements, prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs (medications), vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, blood transfusions, medical devices, electromagnetic radiation emitting devices (ERED), veterinary products, and cosmetics.
The FDA also enforces other laws, notably Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act and associated regulations, many of which are not directly related to food or drugs.
These include sanitation requirements on interstate travel and control of disease on products ranging from certain household pets to sperm donation for assisted reproduction.
The FDA is led by a Commissioner of Food and Drugs, appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate.
The Commissioner reports to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
The 21st and current Commissioner is Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg.
She has served as Commissioner since February 2009.
The FDA has its headquarters at Rockville, Maryland and has 223 field offices and 13 laboratories located throughout the 50 states, the United States Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
Quote from : Wikipedia : Public Health Service Act
The Public Health Service Act is a United States federal law enacted in 1944.
The full act is captured under Title 42 of the United States Code "The Public Health and Welfare", Chapter 6A "Public Health Service"
It has since been amended many times, some amendments include:
Family Planning Services and Population Research Act of 1970 Pub.L. 91-572, which established Title X of the Public Health Service Act, dedicated to providing family planning services for those in need.
National Cancer Act of 1971
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996
Muscular Dystrophy Community Assistance Research and Education Amendments of 2001
Hematological Cancer Research Investment and Education Act of 2001
Other attempted amendments to the act have failed, such as the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Acts of 2005 and 2007.

What I am most worried about with all this is ....... This technology in the wrong hands , could become a Powerful Weapon of Social Control . Will people Meekly except I.D. Implantations if it happened to become Law one day ? I am not convinced yet that it will , but the chances of it happening at some point in time are not beyond reason IMO . In the last 10 years here in the U.S , the Country has been slowly Attacked BTPTB , and the question for me to ask is , will we just sit by and do nothing ? I for one surely Won't.
