Cellphone keeps a tab on your liver
All those health-freaks who frequent their doctors for weekly checkups I have some great news (if they are planning to purchase a new cellphone). The Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology have come up with a genius plan to help you keep a check on your insides while you engage in your daily activities. It is a phone I am talking about that measures the Glutamine Oxaloacetic Transaminase (GOT) and Glutamine Pyruvic Transaminase (GPT). The readings gathered her are forwarded to a hospitalor some institute where there are people who know what to do with these readings. Probably this is an attempt to help the heavy alcoholics who have growing liver concerns. The Koreans aren’t the best drinkers, but surely are proving to be worthy saviors.
Let’s hope this brings about the harmonization of technology and biology to new levels.
