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.
I literally feel like I am about to puke because of that post. I seriously did not intend to insult every one that ships Larry. It was a mistake and I’ve apologized.
LEAVE HER THE FUCK ALONE
I don’t care what people say when we’re together,
You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep,
I just want it to be you and I forever.
