In the not too distant future, consumers will be able to run on-the-spot tests for environmental toxins, GMOs, pesticides, food safety and more with their smartphones and other hand-held devices
Every human being on every developed nation on Earth, whether living in a rural or isolated area, in the middle of a large city, or near an industrialized area, now contains at least 700 contaminants in their body including pesticides, pthalates, benzenes, parabens, xylenes and many other carcinogenic and endrocrine disrupting chemicals.
“We’re interested in biodetection that needs to be performed outside of the laboratory,” said team leader Brian Cunningham, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and of bioengineering at Illinois.
"Modern biological research is also allowing an extension of laboratory devices on to small computer chips to detect biological information within DNA sequences," said biotech specialist Dr. Marek Banaszewski. "Bioinformatic algorithms within programs will aid the identification of transgenes, promoters, and other functional elements of DNA, making detection of genetically modified foods on-the-spot and real-time without transportation to a laboratory."
In a paper published in the journal Lab on a Chip, the team demonstrated sensing of an immune system protein, but the slide could be primed for any type of biological molecule or cell type. The researchers are working to improve the manufacturing process for the iPhone cradle and are working on a cradle for Android phones as well. They hope to begin making the cradles available next year.

About dang time!
I would buy such a device for sure.

Where I live Monsanto and its frankinseed plus crops are banned. Products are labeled GMO free in regards to corn, rice, soy or other product that could use GMO produce. However, all the neighboring countries ban GMO but still label their items. I suspect it is due to them also being imported to countries that ban GMO foods.
Still with the possibility of manufacturers trying to sneak GMO foods past the inspectors, it's always possible that some do enter the market where they are banned. So this app will be very useful. It's better to be safe than sorry with the likes of Monsanto around.

This will save you the money if you want to buy one.
80% of the crops on this planet are made from gm seeds.
Pesticides have been found on both the poles. there is no organic food on this planet
PCB is a poison monsanto sprayed in the 70s to kill of blackberry and gooseberry bushes this is all the way up the food chain in every vegetable and fruit you eat.
Fluoride is in water, teflon, toothpaste, tea, sprayed into the air through chemtrails as well as other things. some fluoride is scraped directly off the chimney walls as a waste product left over from aluminium and phosphate fertiliser this goes directly into the products you consume.
Petrol is in the air that you breathe, one of my friends brothers is a coroner he has never seen a healthy pair of lungs.
Milk just do not drink it.
Plastics have bisphenol A in them which mimics estrogen the womens hormone, this quitens down the population reduces sperm count and changing peoples gender amongst other things there are many ways the elites use chemicals to control the population.
Meat contains hormones and various parasites as well as other stuff.
Water has various niceties in it, you should check dependant on what country you live in.
this is just a start pretty much everything you eat drink and breathe even cook with is bad for you but do any of you get it nope you need a little machine that will lie to you to make you feel better about killing yourself earlier.
Microwaves were developed by the military to fry the organs of the enemy do i need to say more ok I will if you cook any of your food over a heat of 220 degrees if takes all of the nutritional value out of it, they believe if you microwave food it actually has detrimental effects on your body not just zero nutritional value.
Even music is bad for you 3 months before ww2 the rockerfellers through some british organisation got the frequency changed to 440hz from a natural vibration of 432hz, 440hz was found to be the worst vibration according to military testing for the enemy to experience it creates mass hysteria and causes the wrong vibrations in your body leading to illnesses and stuff.
we need to WAKE UP but the problem with the fluoride is it attacks a region of your brain that makes you submissive to authority.
To decalcify your body from all these toxins you need to take sodium bicarbonate (without the aluminium in) msm takes out the calcium spirulina coriander mms i've heard is good but i haven't checked that out yet
DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH
it only takes a couple of hours to work out whats bad and how to naturally remove it, WE ARE ALL CONDITIONED TO TRUST A DOCTOR do not trust a doctor they are educated by the oil industry (as you all are) and work for the oil industry all pharma drugs are mainly made from crude oil and coal tar, and most doctors will not tell you about the natural cures as they cannot earn any money out of them, sodium bicarbonate apparently cures most cancers in a maximum of 3 weeks and costs around a pound, hemp is fantastic and cures lots of stuff and if you understand how your mind works you can even cure yourself but I imagine most of you won't be able to get your head around this.edit on 27-5-2013 by jinni73 because: (no reason given)
But realistically if you were to know what was in everything, you would freak because at this point I'm pretty convinced virtually everything is contaminated to varying degrees. It would be nice to avoid the highly contaminated things though. Without such things you are left with guesswork at best.
I can imagine in the future having a handheld device that could scan for all sorts of things around you, while serving as a communications device among other uses. The technology is currently available to create such devices in decent quality but due to corporate profiteering it is extremely cost prohibitive.
