National group ‘Lost Kidz App’ have claimed that within five years, so called tracking implants will be standard across the country.
Research, undertaken on behalf of the group, has shown that not only will the implants have tracking abilities, but also may have health benefits as well.
They say, “When you hear of the technologies that are being researched at present (medical), it is fairly clear that we will all want to have implanted monitors tracking our health for the earliest warning signs of cancer and heart disease.
“Why would we wait to have a heart attack or to see advanced symptoms of disease when we will have the choice to monitor on a daily basis creating alerts which can be acted on sooner rather than later.”
A US company has already been given permission to implant microchips into humans.
