Microchips…for tracking medicine

April 13, 2009 at 1:17 am Leave a comment

Microchips: the small, ‘harmless’ chips that can be implanted in one’s body to track them. Well, now, according to this article, microchips could soon be implanted into pills so doctors can track whether or not their patients are taking their medicine. Hello Big Brother! When it is still being questioned whether all medicine is actually even good for you, now doctors want to make sure you are taking it. And remind you if you are not. This is very invasive into everyone’s private life. This article claims these chips could be “useful for psychiatric or elderly patients who rely on a complicated regime of drugs – and are at risk if they miss a dose or take it at the wrong time.”

Well yes, but the same is true for microchips in people. They might help children and psychiatric patients not get lost. But does that mean they are good? No. In fact, they are the opposite of good. It is one thing to write yourself a note to remember to take your pills. But for your doctor to be ‘peering into your life’ to see if you are taking what he or she prescribed is definitely overstepping boundaries.
