As the latest biomedical devices are unveiled, it appears that medical research recently taken a step into the realms of science fiction.

A team of researchers have developed biodegradable, implantable batteries that can deliver internal treatments or monitor bodily tissues, but which are then gradually re-absorbed after use.

“This is a really major advance,” says Jeffrey Borenstein, a biomedical engineer at Draper Laboratory, a non-profit research and development centre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “Until recently, there has not been a lot of progress in this area.”

Dr. Roger Leir tells us about what might well be one of the most important of all implant surgeries. This Naval Intelligence Officer had an implant that was causing him discomfort in his legs. Before it was removed, it was found to be emitting a very low power FM signal. The signal was recorded and is now under study. This is the second implant that has been found to be emitting a radio signal. This is a spectacularly interesting interview. Don’t miss it! Go to Dr. Roger Leir’s website.

So many hard things have happened in the past couple of weeks, I hardly know where to begin.

In addition, Art has filed some new lawsuits that I hope he wins, against people who appear to have crossed the defamation line.

It is deeply, profoundly wrong to defame others. It hurts terribly, and you could hear the anguish of it in Art’s voice when he talked about it on Thursday night.
