DIGITAL PILLS MAKE THEIR WAY TO MARKET!


Is this leading the way for Big Brother to track you even more? The microchip is put into a drug in order to tell your doctor if your taking your medicine as prescribed. ok, I know there are people out there who do abuse the system. I seen them every day when I worked at the hospital. But there is no way I’m putting anything in my body thats a microchip. The excuse they are using for this is that about half of all people dont take their prescriptions like they are supose to. “It’s like big brother watching you take your medicine.”

The sand-particle sized sensor consists of a minute silicon chip containing trace amounts of magnesium and copper. When swallowed, it generates a slight voltage in response to digestive juices, which conveys a signal to the surface of a person’s skin where a patch then relays the information to a mobile phone belonging to a healthcare provider.Currently, the FDA, and the analogous regulatory agency in Europe have only approved the device based on studies showing its safety and efficacy when implanted in placebo pills.
