Picture of How to block/kill RFID chips
In this Instructable I will describe different ways to block or kill RFID tags. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. If you do not know about this technology yet, you should definitely start familiarizing yourself with it, because the number of different devices that utilize these types of tags is growing exponentially.

RFID chips are very similar to barcodes in the sense that a certain amount of data is contained within them, and then transmitted to a reading device which then processes and utilizes the information. The major difference is that barcodes have to be physically visible to the reading device, which is usually only able to scan them at a distance of a 12 inches or less. RFID tags, on the other hand, do not have to be visible to the reading device. They can be scanned through clothes, wallets, and even cars. The distance from which they can be read is also much greater than that of a barcode. At DEFCON an RFID tag was scanned at a distance of 69 feet, and that was back in 2005, the possible reading distance now is probably much greater than that.

There are a few different categories of RFID tags, but the most common ones, and the ones we will be dealing with in this instructable, are the "passive" type. Passive RFID chips contain no internal power supply. They contain an antenna which is able to have a current induced in it when within range of the RFID reader. The tag then uses that electricity to power the internal chip, which bounces its data back out through the antenna, where it will be picked up by the reader.

Hi everyone.i had been chipped around 1 year ago and firstly i don even know about it..I tought i was going crazy because of stress.Until i found the web that i search at google about DEVICE in human body. Then i know about chips or RDID these things.Can somebody please help me? I dont know what kind of chips had been plant in my body. People can know and hear my thinking , can see my brain vision, can feel what i feel (body system), and my eye was like a camera or something, they can see what i see. Please someone helps me. Thank you : )

Please tell me how you got rid of the microchip. Someone told me that I have one in my body and I am scared. What should I do, I went to the doctors and they are calling me delusional.

Something doesn't add up in your story...

Please Everybodies kindly heart your help and answer is so much appreciate and need here..!!!!!!

# Forgot to mention about it #

I can hear the voice of others in my brain that not from my brain system and my body system keep get shocked like been gun by some kind of device through the chips

How do you wreck a chip thats under the skin? Other than cutting it out as I don't know exactly where it is? Will a strong enough magnet work?

I want to thank you all for one of the best argumentative debates I have read in my life. This proves that America can and will move forward from our current problems if only we change the authorities of whom do our policy debates. I am listening and want to inform you that all RFID chips will be of minuscule power requirements and coated with the original recipients DNA tissue growth which was and is at this moments time your core concerns of injectable electronics. Thank you, you will be contacted in the near future and please continue your lively debates as they are the heart of the scientific method. Q

Wow. Quite the lively debate.

the way you'll know about the chip is by experience. my son in law had my grandson chipped for several reasons b4 2 yrs old now can use a cell phone like a remote control to make him say anything i looked and the boys eyes were cameras. the chip was put in his central nervous system. he cannot develop or do anything but is under complete control

How would you kill a rfid chip that is injected under the skin? They put these in crazies and people with Alzheimers desease. Got any idea? Magnets maybe?
G MAN 2dMaxf6 years ago
I too would like that info. I don't think magnets will? I have a dog with one. I really don't want to cut it out. there must be some way.
anubreed G MAN6 years ago
if i were yo i would get the chip removed. it has been proven in lab studys that canceruos tumor a very common sideefect of these chips
If your dog ever was picked up by animal control, that chip is likely the ONLY way you would have of ever getting it back. Collars and tags come off all the time. That chip only contains an ID number. That number can then be looked up by registered owners of scanners, but it doesn't contain any information than what you freely shared to start with. The ability for your dog to be able to be returned to you, solely because of that chip, saves millions of animal lives a year!
Yes it is returned to you, in a cancerous state.....
That is just outright wrong!  RFID chips are no more dangerous than digital watches, and to even attempt to claim that microchips are dangerous to dogs is TOTALLY inappropriate, and completely wrong.  Comments and ill informed beliefs like that are blatantly ignorant of the facts, and harmful to the millions of animals which are saved every year by RFID microchips in pets.

Please, try and produce just ONE peer reviewed scientific and/or medical paper which proves your point.
Yourr understanding of "Peer Reviewed" is interesting, none the less, yes, that is a published paper...  I'm not seeing anything in the way of peer review, and that "study" looks more like a PR piece than actual scientific study.  I would recommend spending a few minutes educating yourself about what a REAL peer review study is:
But here is the summary boiled down to the brass tacks:
"Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform impartial review."
The referenced "paper" is nothing more than an interpretation of other reports, has NOT been reviewed by an impartial panel, a has targeted and pre-determined conclusion.  That's not SCIENCE, and that is NOT a peer reviewed paper.

Never the less...  Congratulations are due however.  You indeed have managed to produced a link which did allow me to do further research on the matter.  After pouring through 6 of the papers, and checking THEIR references and credentials of reviewers, the summary of them basically states that very rarely the introduction of a foreign body (be it an RFID chip, a surgical pin, a lego block for that matter, a surgical sponge, or the surgeons wrist watch) can induce a fibrosarcoma (yes, a tumor) in connective tissue due of a surgical incision and/or injection of a foreign body.  Let's say that again:  Introduction of a foreign body, ANY foreign body, can in very rare instances induce a fibrosarcoma.  It doesn't seem to matter what the particular foreign body is.  This has been a known fact for a VERY long time.  What this does NOT prove is that RFID Chips cause tumors.  Don't believe me, do the same research I just did.  ACTUALLY read them, and check the reviewers references.  Are the reviewers impartial?  What are their credentials?  How respected are they in their field?

All the papers attempt to prove is that introduction of a foreign body (ANY foreign body!) can have an adverse reaction in the form of infection or fibrosarcoma.
This is NOT news, and it is NOT unique to RFID chips.

What do you know, sticking something foreign in a living being can have possible unintended side effects.

Your referenced article (oh, sorry, "Peer reviewed paper", NOT!) do NOT prove is that _RFID_Chips_ cause cancer.  The RFID CHIP does NOT!  The IMPLANTATION of a foreign body may, in very rare instances, and has the EXACT same risks as ANY injection or surgery.
(removed by author or community request)
Lego Blocks don't save your pets life when their collar/tags slip off and they end up in a shelter with 3 days to live before being euthanized, if THAT long.

If I have to choose between the small but POSSIBLE chance of a fibrosarcoma and my pet living and my being able to retrieve them, I'll choose their life saved by a chip... EVERY time.

The simple fact of the matter is, folks wearing their tinfoil hats are going to go on and on and on about possible risks and whatnot.... but here in the REAL world where I live and work daily in animal rescue, chips save lives EVERY day.!

...but, it's a personal decision, and everyone should make it for themselves. I SHOULD have known better than to have been lured into this discussion to start with, and have done my best to refrain and be drawn back into arguing about it from the standpoint of RFID CHIPS ARE EVIL AND THEY SHOULD ALL BE DESTROYED instead of a calm an rational point of that nothing is pure evil or pure good. Everything has benefits and side effects. A chip in your pet MAY cause a fibrosarcoma and yes the chip may wander. There is even a smaller chance that it may cause a health problem due to it interfering with something internal, just as a seed head to spear grass or some other natural item encountered may. These things happen.

There is also the chance that if and when your pet bolts out the front door, or wanders out when a worker leaves a gate open, or neighbor kid accidentally drops a leash, or whatever and they get away and the pet gets picked up by animal control before you can find it... and they scan it... an ID number comes back, they look up that number in the database, find your info you provided, you get a call, and presto... Fido is home and safe again hours later! I see this happen EVERY DAY! Lives saved! If you asked ANY one of those people if they would trade that chip in for a reduced chance of a fibrosarcoma they would think you're insane.

its a problem

i am gonna be moving soon for business reasons the company i am with will be providing housing here is what we are doing we are shielding the place with many layers of foil lined mineral wool fiber boards and the place is all poured concrete key areas will be getting extra shielding such as around microwave ovens induction stoves

and all low voltage wiring will be shielded be shielded and all the lighting will be LED the type with resistor based dimmers and fairday enclosed regulated power supplies we take this as a major threat to the health of our selves and our workers while we will use wifi we will be taking measures to keep the signal as low as possible using 802.11 AC witch can take advantage of bounces of signals to get into every corner while not having issues of it jamming its self up using EMI filters on the mains coming in then again at every distribution panel one per floor in a 10 floor building and then one on every circuit we will be limiting background noise to a minimal while reducing outside background noise and keeping what little noise we make to our selves even our windows are shielded its a problem but as as far rfid blocking we are likely gonna have a rfid credit card that is gonna stay in a rfid blocking wallet shoved into an off pocket kept in a Mylar bag and when not in use for some reason it will be in an all metal safe fitted with that carbon fiber emi filter then that safe will be in a basement fitted with a low power jamming device inside of a shielded room this room will keep the jamming effect inside the room but any attempt at a directed signal capture would impossible not doable for most but yes that card needs to have its RFID chip active and worse yet all this shielding is not a big help if somebody was able to scan it in the mail while we can prevent fraudster joe from getting it its the gov that is the bigger issue but yes i will be microwaving all my new clothing yes will taking the batteries out my phone when not in use then sticking it in a thick metal box such as a safe with the lock disabled so its just a big heavy box yes i will walk down to the corner store from time to time but my home is my santuary

there were 6 pins and 5 screws surgically embedded in my horse's pelvis and right rear leg. He died. 2 years ago, at 32, of natural causes. The pins and 'bailing wire' were there for about 20 of those years. I have had wire holding my chest together due to By Pass surgery for the last 12 years. I also have 9 stents in my arteries. I am sure that many thousands of people and pets have many miles of wire and pins and pace makers and all sorts of things 'installed' in their bodies. I wonder what the cancer/tumor rate is in all those 'animals' . I would bet my life the numbers are very low. OOPS . . . I DID bet my life on it.
mijdtr Questor4 years ago
do all them wires emit or receive rf??
Questor mijdtr4 years ago
most all metallic objects "receive" RF
so u say the injection of a rfid has risks well perhaps rare means nonexistent to some people.

"and has the EXACT same risks as ANY injection or surgery."
hi there .. thanks for your comments, I was interested in this because my dog had a cancer close to the transponder, no proof that it was the cause but of course I shall always wonder.
Here is a link that you will find much more interesting, I didn't read all of the paper, (full paper) ..  peer review
Dr. dB megandf4 years ago
...and STILL we have no mention (at least, in the synopsis linked above) of ANYBODY putting inert-placebo modules directly up against "active" RFID capsules in any blind or double-blind fashion to PROVE, SCIENTIFICALLY, one way or the other, whether it's the actual RF pingers causing the problem or merely the PRESENCE of ANY "foreign object" injected under the skin! Perhaps the “Full Report” contains more of what we seek, but all we have in this “synopsis” is a summary of a meta-study of 11 other studies, rife with incomplete or misleading "data" (OK, so, in 2004 and 2006, Vascellari found 1 dog got cancer - OUT OF HOW MANY? Oh, that's right, THAT vital bit of info is conveniently ABSENT from the chart - "N/A" - What? That's "science"?!?) and “conclusions” which are, at best, highly debatable because, when FACTS are not available, OPINIONS can and will be freely substituted… There are plenty of VALID reasons NOT to let governments or corporations implant humans, willy-nilly. MAYBE the POTENTIAL carcinogenic effects of such implants is one more of them… then again, maybe not…. I’m just completely UN-convinced that the kind of “RF terror” demonstrated in this thread is justified by the FACTS gathered so far! Right alongside DAS_WOOKIE, I am completely CONVINCED that the matter bears more, FACTUAL investigation, not by paranoid, delusional schizophrenics, not by further meta-analyses of anecdotal nonsense, not by Public Relations stooges, nor even by implantable-transponder salesmen, but by QUALIFIED, UNBIASED SCIENTISTS!
tkjtkj Dr. dB4 years ago
Your comments here, in your demands to see what you call 'valid scientific results' reveal considerable ignorance of the limits of clinical medicine. By your requirements you have set up conditions that are either impossible or unethical to meet. Clinical medicine does not, cannot, include rigorous science methodology for reasons that must be obvious: you simply cannot run amok injecting people with devices to prove this or that without being approved by Committees on Medical Ethics.
Dr. dB tkjtkj4 years ago
...and, once again, stepping well outside what was actually said, to put YOUR words into MY keyboard so you can successfully knock-down the “straw man” YOU created. To the contrary, even though I’m not an “MD”, but merely a lowly engineer, I still know quite a lot about "...the limits of clinical medicine...", the exigencies of medical ethics AND the stringency of the SCIENTIFIC METHOD. (I also know quite a lot about RF technologies, since many of the forms of engineering I practice involve transmitters, with outputs ranging from a few nanowatts, like RFIDs, up to half-megawatt UHF monstrosities.) Neither DAS_WOOKIE nor I have EVER advocated that anyone " amok injecting people with devices to prove this or that ...". (In fact, as I said in another reply in this thread, there are PLENTY of VALID reasons to NEVER allow governments and corporations to implant-tag people at will, or “for commerce”…) What we’re trying to get across is, given that THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF PETS (and lab-rats) have ALREADY been injected with ACTIVE devices, a vast body of raw data already exists from which one might begin to draw logical conclusions, IF that information were to be coupled with a little blind or double-blind testing of placebo devices injected under the same circumstances, and it disappoints us that, to date, NO ONE seems to have bothered even COLLECTING those data, let alone putting together a CLINICALLY TRUSTWORTHY synthesis of same. Now, in no way can I claim to have read ALL the literature available on this subject – the list of “studies” I haven’t seen would probably fill a file cabinet (…just the LIST, not even the “reports” themselves!) – perhaps the promoters of such devices are, indeed, the “Spawn of Satan”, trying to enslave the world, and lied through their teeth to the FDA to get their poison “approved”, or perhaps these products are utterly harmless, and everybody’s up-in-arms over nothing. It may well be that conclusive, SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE proving the truth of the matter once and for all is out there, somewhere, and we’ve (I’ve – forgive me if I type out-of-turn on your behalf, WOOKIE…) simply not found it (yet). If so, I’m pretty sure both WOOKIE and I will gladly accept the result, when and if we run across it, WHATEVER it may be, relieved to have finally gotten an ANSWER, instead of the current welter of OPINIONS, ANECDOTES and HYSTERIA! Certainly, the “evidence” SEEMS to indicate there’s SOMETHING going on, but WHAT it is can’t be determined from the paucity of information available (…to me, at least…) at the moment. Certainly, there SEEM to be enough suspicious outcomes to STOP doing this to humans until we figure it out! However, every so-called “report” or “study” I’ve seen so far (…so far – bear that in mind!) has NOT been rigorous “science”, but emotion-goading “pseudo-science”, choked with implied this and insinuated that and intimated the other, pushing a pre-determined agenda without presenting one single, solitary bit of provable, repeatable, SCIENTIFICALLY-GATHERED FACT to support their contentious position! Having seen, over the course of just my own limited lifetime, hundreds of so-called “studies” on various subjects turn out, “…upon further review…”, to be unmitigated “snake oil”, I hope you’ll forgive me if I’m just a TRIFLE skeptical about the results of “studies” conducted (or, at least, wholly-funded) by “interested parties”, from EITHER side – in this case, by grieving pet owners on the one hand, and by implantable-transponder-industry “marketeers” on the other. I rarely believe ANY of ‘em, until they have been PEER-REVIEWED by people who, at least, give a great ILLUSION of being impartial (…and even THEN, sometimes I still just HAFTA go and “stick my finger in the socket”, anyways, just to make REALLY sure they’re not scammin’ me…).
tkjtkj Dr. dB4 years ago
Yes, i concede, that you know much .. more than enough to be dangerous...
Dr. dB tkjtkj4 years ago
“Dangerous”? To whom? Purveyors of “snake oil”, perhaps…? I’m simply advocating a “…test-tubes and Bunsen burners…” treatment of this issue, while you (so far, anyway), seem to be taking more of a “…torches and pitchforks…” approach – who’s “dangerous”? Maybe I’m unusual in this, but I’d usually rather be dazzled with brilliance (“Here’s that definitive report – sorry it took so long, but it conclusively proves that RFID implants do / don’t cause cancer under these / those conditions.”) than baffled with BS (“Well, my sister’s cousin’s brother twice removed once knew a guy whose osteopath adjusted a lady whose neighbor had dinner with a nice couple from out of town whose dog died of cancer after getting one of those implant thingies!”). If you find my preference for repeatable, verifiable facts over unsubstantiated anecdotes and opinions to be “dangerous”, then I take it as a compliment. Thank you very much!
If you go to the FDA's website and look up info on RFID's it explicitly states that RFID's are know to possibly cause cancer in animals and humans. That's the FDA who approved the use of them in humans. I think you can't  get a more peer reviewed group out there.
Oh well, since you say so, it MUST be true </sarcasm>

Once again, please furnish a peer reviewed reference one can examine for themselves and reach an informed conclusion by, if you want to be taken seriously.

The burden of proof is not mine to debunk the (false) statement that "RFID chips cause cancer."  They do not.  Also, the burden of proof is on the person claiming that the chips do by providing evidence which support that theory.  I would refer you to for examples of how this process is supposed to work:  "Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. A scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation and experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses."

Anybody can claim any ol' thing they want to.  Doing so doesn't make it true, and pointing to a marketing puff piece dressed up to look like science isn't science simply because they reference a lot of studies.  Studies that do NO support their claims I might add.  The burden of proof is on those who refute the theory to prove it wrong.  Only ONE piece of evidence to the contrary disproves the whole theory.  Period.  That's how it works, and is what makes science so great!  Only the best theories survive the test of peer reviewed SCIENCE!  Thus far, no one has been able to provide a single piece of scientific EVIDENCE as to support this hypothisis that the chips cause cancer.  They do not, and no-one has been able to prove they do...  not even once.  {shrug}

And yes...  I _did_ try searching the FDA site for evidence to support your claim.  I didn't find anything.  If you would care to furnish said paper tho, I would appreciate it.  I'm betting no such article exists however.

Here it is:

It lists adverse tissue reaction as a possible side effect. I did a cursory search for Adverse Tissue Reaction, and found a lot of sites that explain it, but this was from a UK medical journal that summed it up pretty well:

What is a serious adverse reaction (SAR)?

A serious adverse reaction is defined as "an unintended response, including a communicable disease, in a donor of tissue or cells intended for human application or a recipient of tissue or cells, which may be associated with the procurement or human application of tissue or cells and which is fatal, life-threatening, disabling, incapacitating or which results in, or prolongs, hospitalization or morbidity."

Of course  the word "cancer" isn't stated, but as most doctors will tell you "cancer" is a generic term for a variety of illnesses, each with different and varied factors which lead to the cancer. The fact that the FDA states that there could be an ATR, which, as we can see from the UK site, could potentially lead to death, should cause some concern.

:) Did you READ the study you cited? Yes, it lists Adverse Tissue Reaction as a POSSIBLE side effect (Page 6, Section 3, Risks To Health, Identified Risk, Adverse Tissue Reaction) of which it lists three mitigation measures:
Biocompatibility - See Mitigations Section A
Sterility - See Mitigations Section J
Labeling - See Mitigations Section L

All three of these mitigations are standard for medical devices and would be the same for anything implanted, be it a surgical screw, pace maker, or yes, an RFID chip.

Also, the cited risk, and your cited explanation are not for the same two medical problems. "Adverse Tissue Reaction" != "Serious Adverse Reaction". The devils in the details.


sorry for some reason the link didn't appear with the text, .. try again ..m
