E-M:/ Studies connect microchip implants with fast-growing malignant tumors in lab animals



Michigan is one of a very few states that have embarked on fulfilling an expensive and highly controversial national plan (the national animal identification system -NAIS) to chip all farm animals and watchdog any movement off their owner's land from birth until death. As of March 7th, the state of Michigan began a mandatory chipping program for cattle. With some studies showing fast-growing tumors in up to 1% to 10% of lab animals injected with glass-encapsulated microchips, perhaps this program (and chipping of people and pets) should be reevaluated. - Kay Cumbow

MICROCHIP IMPLANTS CAUSE FAST-GROWING, MALIGNANT TUMORS IN LAB ANIMALS
Damning research findings could spell the end of VeriChip

Snip: "The Associated Press will issue a breaking story this weekend revealing that microchip implants have induced cancer in laboratory animals and dogs, says privacy expert and long-time VeriChip opponent Dr. Katherine Albrecht."

Snip: "As the AP will report, a series of research articles spanning more than a decade found that mice and rats injected with glass-encapsulated RFID transponders developed malignant, fast-growing, lethal cancers in up to 1% to 10% of cases. The tumors originated in the tissue surrounding the microchips and often grew to completely surround the devices, the researchers said."

Snip: "Albrecht expressed concern for those who have received a chip implant, urging them to get the devices removed as soon as possible.
'These new revelations change everything,'she said. 'Why would anyone take the risk of having a cancer chip in their arm?' "
