March 18, 2008—A New Jersey orthopedic surgeon says he has developed an RFID-enabled device that can measure and transmit data regarding the condition of the tissue around an implant, as well as whether the implant is functioning properly.
The device, designed by Lee Berger, a senior partner at Orthopaedic Associates in Fair Lawn, is based on patent 7333013, granted to Berger in February by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, for orthopedic implants using RFID technology to help patients and physicians track healing around an implant.
...........Now that the patent has been granted, he hopes to develop partnerships with RFID and implant vendors to begin producing hip or knee joint replacements or spinal implants, including rods, plates and screws that come with RFID tags and sensors embedded in them.
.......The sensors would be wired to an RFID chip, which would transmit the sensor data to an RFID interrogator used by a physician.
What's more, Berger says, the implant features an electric stimulator wired to the RFID chip. In response to instructions from the reader, the stimulator can generate 20 to 40 microamps of electricity. The electric current passes through the bone in which the implant is attached, to promote healing.

Don't forget CELL-PHONES !!!
Because almost everyone has a cell-phone now, we are basically chipped. "They" can watch your every move, listen to you at all times, read your messages, and all that good stuff.

OP you know the drill.
Who was that somebody that told you about us possibly being chipped for 40 years.
Please identify that somebody and show his expertise that would allow him to make such a claim.
What you said is utter hear say without a source.

Anyway, according to this person, the chips allow tracking, allow the government to see out of your eyes and hear from your ears, and perhaps even a bit of rudimentary mind control.
