A Great Health Add-on To Your HVAC System

In the spirit of the Internet of Things and the Smart Home, I was intrigued by a short article I read about Menssana Research which can identify 2,000 chemical compounds from our breadth…including signs of cancer and radiation exposure.  Pretty cool!

I guess this explains how dogs can detect diseases in humans. 

Of course, my mind jumped to the idea of how you could use existing devices (like Nest) which would be tied into our HVAC system and could monitor the overall air in an entire house and look for risks based on the air.  (like my idea of the smart toilet)  Maybe that’s a little too scary like why an underwriter wants your cell phone data or too much like the Snapshot from Progressive.  And, while on the one hand it’s cool, I’m not always sure we’re ready to know things too much in advance so the question would really be how early is the device identifying people and how accurate is it.
