Digital Pills Make Their Way To Market.

WTF?? NO WAY!  These sensors are the first ingestible devices approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To some, they signify the beginning of an era in digital medicine. “About half of all people don’t take medications like they’re supposed to,” says Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in La Jolla,California. “This device could be a solution to that problem, so that doctors can know when to rev up a patient’s medication adherence.” Topol is not affiliated with the company that manufactures the device, Proteus Digital Health in Redwood City,California, but he embraces the sensor’s futuristic appeal, saying, “It’s like big brother watching you take your medicine.” WE NEED TO GET CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT TO SWALLOW MICROCHIPS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE VOTING ON LAWS LIKE THEY PROMISED!! AND DOCTORS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE REALLY LISTENING TO PATIENTS OPPOSED TO SELLING BIG PHARMA… : (
