Could Microchip Laden Drugs Be Used To Invade Our Privacy

There are a lot of people who strongly believe that the government will do almost anything to get microchips into the body of every American.  Many of these people also believe that such a microchip could well be the mark of the beast that we read about in Revelation 13:16-18.

For those microchip conspiracists, they may be very interested to learn that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has just given approval to Proteus Digital Health for the use of a tiny microchip to be placed in medication taken orally.  The microchip will be no larger than 1 square millimeter or 0.0015 square inch.

The supposed purpose of the microchip embedded in the medication is to “improve the effectiveness of existing pharmaceutical treatments.”  If that were only the case, then I would not question it at all, but when you read what they really say on the company’s website, it causes me concern about who is getting what information about my body and what it will be used for:

Digital Medicines are the same pharmaceuticals you take today, with one small change: each pill also contains a tiny sensor that can communicate, via our digital health feedback system, vital information about your medication-taking behaviors and how your body is responding.”

Please take note that these chips will be monitoring when you take the medication, how much you take and how effective it is.  Then it will be reporting this information back to someone who will then have that information about you and your body.  Someone we don’t know will be receiving our personal information and sharing it with whom?

I hate to think of myself as becoming a conspiracy nut job, but I can see the government hijacking this technology to monitor more than medication results.  Who knows what they could program the chips to monitor and to whom it would be reported to.  This just reeks too much of Big Brother invading our private lives and trying to control any and every aspect of what we do.

Reading this report makes me want to spend more time learning how to use nature’s remedies to many common ailments.  The American Indians knew what plants to use for what and how to combine different ones for other treatments.  Willow bark, for example, is a natural source for aspirin.  I believe it’s time to return to those days if for no other reason to prevent myself from having to take microchipped drugs and give anyone any more personal information about me that I don’t want them to have.
