‘It’s long been known (or at least theorized) that, under certain conditions, the metal in tooth fillings or braces can act as as antennae – there have been many reports of people claiming (over the years since radios and dental work have been around) that they are able to hear AM frequency broadcasts emanating from their mouths.
Recently, researchers have been busy developing tooth implants designed to do precisely the opposite, i.e. broadcasting signals rather than receiving them.
That’s right, a group of scientists at the National Taiwan University are creating tooth-implanted sensors that can transmit information via Bluetooth (sort of gives the term “Bluetooth” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?).
What type of information, you might be wondering?’
Has any study been done to see if these microchips cause cancer and are neurotoxic?
