FDA OKS implanted medical info chip
Chips would reveal patient's allergies, prior treatments
Wednesday, October 13, 2004 Posted: 11:24 AM EDT (1524 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved an implantable computer chip that can pass a patient's medical details to doctors, speeding care.

VeriChips, radio frequency microchips the size of a grain of rice, have already been used to identify wayward pets and livestock. And nearly 200 people working in Mexico's attorney general's office have been implanted with chips to access secure areas containing sensitive documents.

Delray Beach, Florida-based Applied Digital Solutions in July asked the FDA for approval to use the implantable chip for medical uses in the United States. The agency had 60 days to reply to the "de novo" application.

It's the first time the FDA has approved the use of the device, though in Mexico, more than 1,000 scannable chips have been implanted in patients. The chip's serial number pulls up the patients' blood type and other medical information.

With the pinch of a syringe, the microchip is inserted under the skin in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes and leaves no stitches.

Silently and invisibly, the dormant chip stores a code -- similar to the identifying UPC code on products sold in retail stores -- that releases patient-specific information when a scanner passes over the chip.

At the doctor's office those codes stamped onto chips, once scanned, would reveal such information as a patient's allergies and prior treatments.

The FDA in October 2002 said that the agency would regulate health care applications possible through VeriChip. Meanwhile, the chip has been used for a number of security-related tasks as well as for pure whimsy: Club hoppers in Barcelona, Spain, now use the microchip much like a smartcard to speed drink orders and payment.

Cool, with a scanner, you can get anyones medical history just by being near them.

Better be careful what you go to a Dr.'s for...

At speakers circle on campus, we have crazy people yelling it's the end of the world everyday. It's good for a chuckle. Yesterday they had 20 foot tall signs saying "Accept Jesus or Perish" and it was really windy, so the guy was getting flung around. It was funny....

That would be a "HELL EFFING NO!"

Besides, it'd take about a dozen of those things to list all of my medical history ...

I'm convinced that my warranty expired about 5 years ago.

Here's the scariest part of this story, IMO:

"Club hoppers in Barcelona, Spain, now use the microchip much like a smartcard to speed drink orders and payment."

From Revelation--
"He required everyone--great and small, rich and poor, slave and free--to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name."
--Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

I'm an amature on the Bible, but I believe requiring everyone to carry the mark of the beast happens after the Rapture and during the first half of the Tribulations.

I'm of the understanding that the mark of the beast was intended to signify something that was relevant to the people who lived when John wrote not events that would occur 2,000 years later.

Maybe, then again, maybe not. No where does the Bible spell out when or whether the Rapture will happen in some 7 year sequential time sequence. The only verse that has precedence is "No one nows the hour or the day of the return of the lord."

Plan like it is today while preparing for another 1000 years of occupying.

King Nebecawhatever, DEMANDED, that Shad, Mesh, and Abinny, bow down and worship him when the horns flutes and pipes played, but they refused.

The "Beast", "Antichist" or whatever, WILL DEMAND homage. Acceptance of this "homeland security" device will prevent terrorism and control illegal drug trade. It will help balance the budget, and provide security against unathorized entry into secure zones such as airports. In this post 9/11 world, if Kerry promoted that in the debate tonight as his "plan" he would probably win the Presidency.

It's a little known fact, but most atheists adopted their beliefs solely because they're afraid of heights.

Kissenger is the Antichrist and I can prove it, take a base 6 and apply it to the alphabit (i.e a=6, b=12, c=18 etc) Apply the numbers to Kissinger and add it up, it equals 666, now of course you can do the same thing with the word computer.
