And please if one of the editors could kindly put the diagram on the page for everyone to see it would be much appreciated. I would but don't know
Howdy SlyFox, this is an issue that has been discussed here in various threads, and I will just give you a head's up. Someone will be along shortly
to tell you there is nothing to worry about, it is for the elderly and mentally unstable patients as a means of keeping track, and others will
disagree with that premise, and argue that big Pharma/Govmnt is out to herd us up like cattle, control us, and keep us from obtaining any privacy in
the matter of record keeping. 2 camps on the subject, if you will.....
Personally, I am a bit reluctant to embrace these type of progressions because of money and control, but that is my OPINION, and I will leave it at
that. This progression is inevitable, I just want there to be some consideration and guidelines to protect privacy rights. While I can see a benefit
with some elderly and mental patients, my concern is that RDIF chips could become standard for everyone. If my parents lose their way as they age, I
will put a tracker device on a necklace or in their shoes rather than under the skin.
As far as investment? Probably a good one, with the growth of elderly population and pet owners, and efforts by Ins Co's to consolidate
recordkeeping, these chips will sell.
