New Technology Allows Diseases To Be Detected Just By A Person's Breath! Find Out If You Have Diabetes Just By This Smell!
Sometimes science is awesome, and then sometimes is a total game changer!
A study recently came out that shows some diseases can be detected just by smelling a person’s breath. Right now, they’re working with dogs, who have ruff-ly 295 million more scent receptors than humans, to create a handheld device which hospitals can use to screen for illness, including some kinds of cancer!
There's also a chip that can be put into phones and will detect diseases just by you breathing on the screen!

Casey Anthony is back in court, but not to answer for the crimes she was acquitted of — but because she's getting SUED.
And the lawsuit DOES link back to the tragic death of her daughter, Caylee. You see, when Caylee first went missing, Casey made up a story about how a nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez had disappeared with her — but there was no such nanny. It was all made up (how did Casey get away with all this again??).
Anyway, a woman actually named Zenaida Gonzalez launched the lawsuit last year and claims Anthony’s lie ruined her life by tarnishing her name.
We can totally see that.
The deposition, now MONTHS later, had Casey put under oath once again, and she was once again asked questions about the death of her daughter… but she
