New wireless technology to medicate the population

New wireless technology to medicate the population

 in  Drug Dangers July 22, 2015

wireless-drug-therapy(NaturalHealth365) Americans have a multi-billion dollar drug problem, and it is completely legal. In fact, the biggest drug problem in the U.S. is not illicit drugs, but rather one that is both supported and financed by our country’s biggest companies and leaders – our overwhelming dependence on prescription medications. Unfortunately, America’s prescription drug epidemic is only expected to grow larger, and big pharma could not be happier about it.
Over the past two decades, pharmaceutical companies have been highly successful increasing the American reliance on prescription drugs. One company, however, has focused less on drug development and more on accessibility. Its new product – microchip drug delivery – takes advantage of wireless technology to provide automatic drug administration, essentially making it easier to mindlessly drug the population than it ever has been before.

Can you imagine wireless technology delivering drugs to the population?

Microchips Biotech claims that its product is the “convergence of drug delivery and electronic technologies” and is designed to help doctors keep up with their patients’ health in real time. It makes it possible to automatically administer medication either via wireless technology or by preprogrammed scheduling. The company claims it will help patients who have difficulty remembering to take medications at the same time each day or who are burdened by frequent or daily self-injections.
Medical microchips can be inserted into a patient’s arm, abdomen or buttocks during a routine office visit. Each microchip contains hundreds of reservoirs, each of which can hold a milligram of medication. When activated, the reservoirs release medication automatically with the help of internal sensors.

Big pharma stands to profit from microchip drug administration

Obviously, the applications for this type of technology are endless, and that has big pharma seeing dollar signs. Microchips Biotech is now partnering with other companies and organizations to make this technology more mainstream.
Just recently, the company announced a $35 million partnership with Israeli pharmaceutical company, Teva. It also hired a new CEO, who has made it her mission to utilize microchips for birth control purposes in the U.S. and around the world.
Now that big pharma is essentially ‘putting the pharmacy inside of us’, there is no doubt this type of technology will be passed off as beneficial and even revolutionary for patients. After all, Americans medicate themselves more than any other developed country in the world. According to 2013 research from the Mayo Clinic, more than 70 percent of all Americans take at least one prescription drug and 20 percent take five or more.
Medications run the gamut from birth control and antidepressants to pain killers and medicines used to manage chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Microchips Biotech has already confirmed plans to explore applications of its technology for many of these medications, implying that they have only scratched the surface in their plans to keep the population drug-dependent.

Am I crazy or are we better off without big pharma?

If these drugs work so well and are so accessible, it would only make sense that the country with the greatest prescription drug consumption would also have the longest life expectancy on Earth. Yet the Central Intelligence Agency does not even rank the U.S. among the top 20 nations for longevity. In fact, the U.S. comes in at number 42 – just barely edging out countries like Kuwait, Cuba and Chile.
The truth is, we are not any healthier than countries that are less dependent on medications – we are sicker.
The key to health and longevity cannot be found in a test tube or clinical trial. Contrary to what western medicine would have us believe, there are no short cuts to better health. We, as concerned citizens, need to wake up to the colossal schemes of money-hungry companies and shady government organizations – before it’s too late.
