(NaturalNews) Under the guise of helping people remember to take their medications as prescribed, a new microchip product called Helius, or the Raisin Personal Monitor, will be attached to pills in the UK by the end of 2012. The product is designed by Proteus Biomedical in California. Presumably, the powers that be don’t believe that citizens of the UK have enough sense to take their medicines without being monitored. With the addition of the Helius “smart pill” to medicines, people will lose the right to make their own decisions about how their healthcare is managed. Where else will this “new” medical technology surface?
