Hey everyone it’s vinyl giveaway time. My record player broke and I don’t have the funds to fix it, plus I’ve been spending too much money on this stuff so I’ve decided to give away a bit of my collection. I’m gonna try to make this short and sweet as to not clog dashes. Here’s the rules:
Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
