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.
By Hiroko Kubota, whist making custom shirts for her young son, Kubota gave in to a request of his for cats on his shirts from a vast library of internet felines. Interest boomed, and now if you really want one you can purchase one from her Etsy store—if you’re quick that is, they go like hot-cakes.
I want all these shirts!!!
