Implantable Biochips May Soon Replace Injections And Pills

- Belle Ringer in Prophecy News Watch -

I can't help it. I just instinctively recoil when I hear about another deal made between pharmaceutical corporations and biotechnology companies. Add in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and I am instantly suspicious. So was Rob Matheson at TechSwarm, who reported that an implantable, microchip-based
device may soon replace the injections and pills now needed to treat chronic diseases.

According to Matheson, a company called Microchips Biotech partnered with Teva Pharmaceuticals, the world’s largest producer of generic drugs, to develop and commercialize its wirelessly controlled, implantable, microchip-based devices that store and release drugs inside the body over many years. The microchips consist of hundreds of pinhead-sized reservoirs, each capped with a metal membrane, that store tiny doses of therapeutics or chemicals. An electric current delivered by the device removes the membrane, releasing a single dose. The device can be programmed wirelessly to release individual doses for up to 16 years to treat, for example, diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and osteoporosis. Sounds good, right?

I will admit that medical technology has seen great advancements in recent years; and who can deny how great it would be to help eradicate and control all the above-mentioned diseases, or how much the industry has done to help our wounded veterans returning from war? But when I listen to some of the philosophies of the inventors, and who they are willing to get into bed with ... well, frankly, it sends chills up my spine.
