RFID research further moves towards implanting chips in humans
(INTELLIHUB) — For years many within the alternative media have written about the danger to freedom posed by implantable RFID chips. From chips implanted into pets to chips used in humans to monitor their health, society has slowly been conditioned to accept implanted microchips as a useful science based tool.
Now, with funding from the National Science Foundation in collaboration with the National Research Foundation in Korea, researchers are attempting to create an implantable antenna for “long-term patient monitoring.”
“Antennas operating near or inside the human body are important for a number of applications, including healthcare. Implantable medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers and retinal implants are a growing feature of modern healthcare, and implantable antennas for these devices are necessary to monitor battery level and device health, to upload and download data used in patient monitoring, and more,” read the abstract for the grant.
“This project will create a UHF RFID tag antenna that can be inserted under the skin for a permanent application. Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID tag antennas are printed using conductive ink and have found increased applications due to advantages such as minimal cost, low maintenance, good tag read range, and ability to operate without an integrated battery. Despite their potential use in long-term patient monitoring and wireless biometric tracking there is limited research on UHF RFID for insertion in high-loss human body environments.”
Although the government has so far only contributed a few thousand dollars towards the research, the fact that this is being pursued at all indicates that other researchers are also likely conducting research in RFID technology for use within the human body.
In fact, this technology has been promoted by the elite and the mainstream media for years.
Dr. Katherine Albrecht has long exposed the dangers of RFID chips through her books and during different freedom orientated conferences throughout the country.
An overview on her Spychips website provides a general introduction to RFID chips and the dangers related to this technology of government control, specifically focusing on the use of savings cards by grocery stores.
Amazingly, a portion of the overview was written way back in 2002. Pretty much everything written in the below overview on the introduction of RFID chips to the populace has already come true. Just imagine how far the technology has come in the year 2015.
Supermarket cards and retail surveillance devices are merely the opening volley of the marketers’ war against consumers. If consumers fail to oppose these practices now, our long-term prospects may look like something from a dystopian science fiction novel.
A new consumer goods tracking system called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is poised to enter all of our lives, with profound implications for consumer privacy. RFID couples radio frequency (RF) identification technology with highly miniaturized computers that enable products to be identified and tracked at any point along the supply chain.
The system could be applied to almost any physical item, from ballpoint pens to toothpaste, which would carry their own unique information in the form of an embedded chip.
The chip sends out an identification signal allowing it to communicate with reader devices and other products embedded with similar chips.
A number for every item on the planet
RFID employs a numbering scheme called EPC (for “electronic product code”) which can provide a unique ID for any physical object in the world.  The EPC is intended to replace the UPC bar code used on products today.
Unlike the bar code, however, the EPC goes beyond identifying product categories–it actually assigns a unique number to every single item that rolls off a manufacturing line. For example, each pack of cigarettes, individual can of soda, light bulb or package of razor blades produced would be uniquely identifiable through its own EPC number.
Once assigned, this number is transmitted by a radio frequency ID tag (RFID) in or on the product.
Receiver or reader devices are used to pick up the signal transmitted by the RFID tag. Proponents envision a pervasive global network of millions of receivers along the entire supply chain — in airports, seaports, highways, distribution centers, warehouses, retail stores, and in the home. This would allow for seamless, continuous identification and tracking of physical items as they move from one place to another, enabling companies to determine the whereabouts of all their products at all times.
Steven Van Fleet, an executive at International Paper, looks forward to the prospect. “We’ll put a radio frequency ID tag on everything that moves in the North American supply chain,” he enthused recently.
The ultimate goal is for RFID to create a “physically linked world” in which every item on the planet is numbered, identified, catalogued, and tracked. And the technology exists to make this a reality. Described as “a political rather than a technological problem,” creating a global system “would . . . involve negotiation between, and consensus among, different countries.” Supporters are aiming for worldwide acceptance of the technologies needed to build the infrastructure within the next few years.

Unfortunately, the dangers of RFID chips doesn’t stop with the privacy implications as numerous studies have shown that pets implanted with these chips have developed cancer.
A review of the literature by Dr. Albrecht concluded:
CASPIAN’s new report, “Microchip-Induced Tumors in Laboratory Rodents and Dogs: A Review of the Literature 1990–2006,” is a definitive review of research showing a causal link between implanted radio-frequency (RFID) microchip transponders and cancer in laboratory rodents and dogs. It was written in part to correct industry misstatements and misinformation circulating about the studies.
The report evaluates eleven articles previously published in toxicology and pathology journals. In six of the articles, between 0.8% and 10.2% of laboratory mice and rats developed malignant tumors around or adjacent to the microchips. Two additional articles reported microchip-related cancer in dogs. See Original Research Articles section below for details.
In almost all cases, the malignant tumors, typically sarcomas, arose at the site of the implants and grew to surround and fully encase the devices. These fast-growing, malignant tumors often led to the death of the afflicted animals. In many cases, the tumors metastasized or spread to other parts of the animals. The implants were unequivocally identified as the cause of the cancers.
The report reviews the relevant research and concludes with a series of recommendations for physicians, policy makers, pet owners, and researchers, including the following:
1) Further microchipping of humans should be immediately discontinued; (2) Implanted patients should be informed in writing of the research findings and offered a procedure for microchip removal, and (3) Policy makers should reverse all animal microchipping mandates
One of the major steps towards the implementation of a completely controlled world government is the implementation of RFID chips in every item for sale and every human being and animal on the planet.
Although this may seem farfetched, the technology is absolutely there and the promotion of it can be seen throughout our daily lives.
The mark of the beast as foretold in the Bible may be a reality much sooner than most believe.
