That is not an implantable chip.
That is for tracking things like pacemakers, knee replacements, implants of donor tissues and bones (yes they are serialized), corneas, metal bone
fixators, plates, internal defribillators, hip replacements, and other implantable devices.
The reason being if a faulty or defective device is implanted in a person, and they need to be tracked down for emergency recall reasons, there needs
to be a central database and method for tracking them.
If your internal defribrillator has a known defect and is not going to fire at a critical moment your life may be in danger, and hours may be all that
stands between you and death. You would want to be reached, and rushed to the hospital if your life was in the balance due to a major product
Everything is not sinister. Everything is not a conspiracy. Somethimes, things really are for your own good.
