Microsoft's HealthVault, the medical records database, is to be integrated with VeriMed's human-embedded RFID tags, allowing doctors to access the medical records of unconscious patients with a quick scan of the arm.

The idea isn't that bad, providing the custodians of your health data can be trusted. However in this day and age when ones own government cannot be trusted, it beggars belief that a commercial enterprise well known for putting their own interests above all else should be trusted or even permitted to hold such data.
If you look after yourself, take your vitamins and herbs, exercise, get up to date on the science ie The Cure and Prevention of All Cancers, 2007, HR Clark PhD ND, then you dont need to visit the Doc, let alone get chipped. You will need to ignore the pseudo scientific nonsense from mainstream and the Docs talking about cholesterol, calories, food pyramids, healthy soy, canola and olive oil, safe microwave and teflon cooking, safe MSG and aspartame and all other such like nonsense, designed to keep you sick.You may still need to visit for insurance/pilot medicals etc., and if you get knocked down by a bus. At 71, that has been my story for the last 35 years.
