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.
Not watched the second half of Megaforce yet because I’ve had lots of other things to do/watch over the past few months. Then I found out the whole series is on Netflix. Am I going to watch 11-19? NOPE! Straight to the finale.
I am old.
When you say Megaforce, I think this:
11 years before my time.
Maybe I should grow up and move on….
