Tests Showing Cancer Risks Of Implanted RFID

The implantable RFID chip story is getting more frightening, with the Associated Press now reporting a series of tests showing cancers being caused by the implants.

This is potentially significant as Applied Digital has been working aggressively to implant these chips as widely as possible. Although this isn't likely to have a huge impact on traditional retail RFID efforts, any reliable reports of cancer-causing agents are going to raise questions. With tags being sewn into the layers of clothing, will the cancer reports become more widespread?
