Should everyone carry an chip with all the (medical) information?
For example: a men is on holiday, in an exotic country where the local people speak a total different language. This men is badly injured during an accident, he is brought to an hospital. He carries an chip containing all the medical information. The assistant in the foreign hospital scans the chip, an within seconds they know everything about the man. He is an heart patient and he has a pacemaker. This essential information. Imagine what would have happened without this information. A lack of information can have lethal consequences. Such a chip would be really helpful when fast action is required for example an car accident. But this chip has also a negative side: what are the effects of a chip in the human body. Radiation is produced by the chip, this radiation could have bad effect on the health of an person. Another problem can be: privacy. The information on the chip is available for everybody (everyone with a scanner). And what will Health insurance companies do with these information. Again this will be an continuous discussion about health improvement, privacy and the effects of the radiation.
