Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

See, now here is a perfect example of the point I was trying to make.

After reading an article like that, I like to balance it with a little Doris Day!!

How else are we suppose to cope??????

Mike A might be blowing this a bit out of proportion (as he sometimes likes to do) but it certainly gives you something to think about. The whole thing just seems really foolish just like a lot of other high tech inventions that supposedly are going to "make our lives easier and protect us blah, blah, blah, blah....

My husband loves the movie because he is a fan of all the comedians in it.

I love Doris Day and Rod Taylor, but I prefer Do Not Disturb with the two of them.

Esp. when the olive is thrown down the backside (as in rear end) of D.D.'s dress and she starts shaking her rear to get it out! OMG!! I love that!!

Hope there is another Doris Day fan around. Some times the scariness of our world just begs for a little break with a D.D. film.

It takes a few minutes to get to the good part, but you so know when you've hit it.

We all need a little Doris Day sometimes!!!

Anybody see the old movie Glass Bottom Boat with Doris Day, Rod Taylor, Paul Lynn, and Dom Delouise??

There is a scene where there is an electronic olive with antennas and Dom Deloise winds up having to eat it. When I started to read this article that is the first thing I thought of and died laughing!!!

You just had to see the movie.

In response to REIGNWATER,

Yah, or reward! What are they going to do; send out the medication police to your house??

Sorry, I guess you are talking about some serious meds that would be a life or death situation to someone. Yes, then you are right; seems like a lot of trouble. But this is still so invasive, so Orwellian, so scary to see where our world might be headed. I think if a person chooses not to take their meds and just get sick and die that is THEIR business not anybody else's. If they are mentally incapable of making that decision then they need to be in a place where loving hands will assist.

Just imho

Another amazing and entertaining article from Jenny Thompson

This one is going to be hard to swallow.

Engineering researchers at the University of Florida have developed a pill that contains a tiny microchip and a "digestible antenna."

Those are two words I never imagined seeing together: digestible antenna.

It's also something I never imagined washing down with a glass of water. So I hope the UF engineers won't be offended if I just say thanks but no thanks.

Once swallowed, the microchip in the pill sends a signal to an electronic device. The device then sends a message to a computer that keeps tabs on how often an individual pill from a bottle of transmitting pills has been taken.

So...why put a microchip and an antenna in a pill anyway?

Two reasons: 1) To make sure subjects in clinical trials are taking their meds (or placebos) when they're supposed to, and 2) To make sure patients are following doctors' orders.

According to the American Heart Association, the "number one problem in treating illness today" is patients' failure to follow prescription regimens.

Really? That's the NUMBER ONE problem in treating illness? It's not the illnesses. Not the drugs. Not the doctors. It's those pesky patients! They just won't follow orders!

So imagine getting this call from your doctor...

Doctor: You didn't take your pill.

You: How did you know?

Doctor: I just know. I'll stay on the line while you go take it.

You: Okay...there. I took it.

Doctor: No you didn't.

You: How did you KNOW?

Doctor: Just take it.

I don't know what's worse--swallowing a microchip and digestible antenna, or Big Brother Doctor keeping track of my pill taking.

To Your Good Health,

Jenny Thompson
