Microchip implants “induce” tumors

Posted on 15 February 2013 by admin

On Sep 9th , the Associated Press(AP) released an article stating that it had uncovered information pertaining to the Verichip Corp. test results of its implantable microchips that they tested on animals and saw several reports showing it “induced” tumors in the lab animals. The Verichip Corp., who leads the world market in implantable microchips with currently over 2,000 human’s subjects, has denied these reports and says there is no cause for alarm. The company is eyeing the entire world population as future consumers of its products and claims all its products are safe and that the microchip has been approved already by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Neither the company nor the FDA revealed the information to the public but a series of scientific studies conducted in the mid-1990’s report that the chip implants “induced” malignant tumors in some lab rats and mice. Keith Johnson, a retired toxicologic pathologist, stated he led the studies that occurred at the DOW Chemical Co. in Midland Michigan. His response to the findings was that, “the transponders/microchips were the cause of the tumors.” The Verichip Corp. was “not aware of any studies that have resulted in malignant tumors in laboratory rats, mice and certainly not dogs or cats,” The FDA declined repeated attempts to find out what studies they looked at to approve the product onto the market.


Dr. Steven Stack, an AMA board member with knowledge of the committee’s review, stated the FDA did not review the literature on cancer in implanted animals and that they were not aware of the studies. Published in veterinary and toxicology journals between 1996 and 2006, the studies found that lab mice and rats injected with microchips sometimes developed subcutaneous “sarcomas” – malignant tumors, most of them encasing the implants. In 1997, a study in Germany found cancers in 1 percent of 4,279 chipped mice. The tumors “are clearly due to the implanted microchips,” the authors wrote. “There’s no way in the world, having read this information, that I would have one of those chips implanted in my skin, or in one of my family members,” said Dr. Robert Benezra, head of the Cancer Biology Genetics Program at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Before microchips are implanted on a large scale in humans, he said, testing should be done on larger animals, such as dogs or monkeys. “I mean, these are bad diseases. They are life-threatening. And given the preliminary animal data, it looks to me that there’s definitely cause for concern.” This again is just one more story of another product being released to the public from regulatory groups with little or no knowledge of test results that could have major implications for human usage.
